    I rode my Cross Check to class, locked it up, and rode it home.

    When I got home, I put it where I always put it, up against the wall, and I have been sitting here studying since I got home from class, about an hour and a half, and my rommate and I just heard a really weird hissing noise. We couldnt figure out what it was, and I looked over as it got louder, and saw my front tire go flat.

    WTF?

    I get that alot with the little "goat head" thorns in the desert. I feel lucky to have air in my tires after a long ride.

    Until your bikey starts pulling itself off the rack and doing wheelie taps off your walls all by itself, i really wouldn't overly worry about it.

    I'm not worried, I was just making a statement of how weird and random it was

    i personally hate the occasional put a new tube in the tire and not seed it right, pinching it in the bead, then it blowing out of the tire and blowing up with a loud gunshot style blast, scaring the **** out of me and making me choke on my teriyaki.......

    I did that once when I was fixing up my moms bike, but it was worse. It was like midnight, and I was right inside the garage (I would have been right behind the door if it was closed) and the "gunshot" richocheted through the garage, and then up my street. I live at the very bottom of a street ending in a cul de sac, so it had plenty of bouncing room
