I have seen more flats then I care to count working in the cycling industry, but this is a first! What are the odds you would roll over a nail on a ride? If you have been riding in Austin, I would say pretty good. This nail clearly had the upper hand advantage and penetrated all the way through the DT RR 1.1. Needless to say, the Continental Gator Skin tire was no match for this framing nail.
