Gilbert started the race with special tubeless tire
s: "Its almost impossible to get a puncture
with these tyres
as a special liquid has small crystals which repair holes in the tyre immediately."
Gilbert continued by saying: "We have examined and tested them extensively. They are a bit harder than normal tyres
." Gilbert concluded with: "The adavantage is that I won't lose the Omloop because of a flat tyre."
He ran a flat tyre 4 km into the race...
Remember that nemesis nail I mentioned a couple days ago? It was more evil than first I realized. I got a replacement tire
yesterday, and spent the evening futilely trying to get the thing to seal up. I was losing air through the breather holes in the side of the rim. Figuring that the problem must be the valve stem, I first overtorqed it, then assembled it wrong and overtorqued it. To no one's surprise, neither method worked. Fortunatly Matt at UBI knows everything there is so know about Shimano, so I asked him. He found that the evil nail had puntured the rim itself, and replaced the valve stem I stupidly overtorqued. I spent a couple seconds wondering how good a welder you have to be in order to weld 0.0000007mm thick Scandium. Then, Matt told me the super advanced repair method.
