Physics is Phun!

Okay, how fast do you suppose one has to ride a racing bike to blow one of its skinny 120psi tires?


That's right, It was parked. In a closet. With no rider.

I'm a big guy, and I'm used to blowing tires. I was thinking of making a bead curtain out of all my old innertubes, but they're sort of grimy. But this was just shocking! I rode it 10 miles, hauled it upstairs, parked it in the closet, changed clothes, and was on my computer when I heard a pop and a hiss that scared the hell out of me. I thought some important bit in my AC unit had blown, and I would soon succumb to a slow freon death
