I very rarely get punctures. I keep my tyres at the right pressure and generally roll the Brisbane River Loop — a 36 km loop in Brisbane that is very popular with cyclists. It came as somewhat of a surprise then that I got a puncture … at the end of my street as I was returning from riding the River Loop. I was pleased that the puncture happened two houses down the street from where I live so that I did not need to change the tube beside the road.
The tyre is a Vittoria Zaffiro Pro 700 x 25C. I chose this tyre because this bike is usually configured as a town bike and I often do not carry a puncture repair kit for my rides down to the local shops. The Vittoria Zaffiro is the most puncture resistant tyre that I use, but as you can see, was no match for a big nail!
