Just found a big screw stuck in my tyre. Tyre was at 6psi. No wonder I had no fricken traction.
I reckon it was intentional. It was stuck all the way in and only wore a very small amount of screw away. Cost me $25 to fix just now. Damn.

Here is a pic of the culprit.

rears are usually the ones that get hit, the screw sits on its side on the road, the front wheel goes over it and flicks it up then the rear hits it!!

I'd still like to blame someone other than me for this one though. :lol:

I'm up for new tyres in 5-10 thousand Ks anyway.
