A good one! A classic.

I've only had one p'ture as big as that in 50 years of cycling, and it didn't manage to go through that many layers!

Proper!

A friend at work got an 8mm allen key in his car tyre at the weekend. The long way in.

Wow. Not had one that big before. I take it you'd gone off-road to end up with that in your tyre?

Just call me Chris...

It's not my tyre either, luckily for me. I'm running on homemade tubeless conversion so I would've been showered with latex as well as having to repair and then replace the tyre...

It was on my mates bike, on a quick off-road excursion after work on Friday.
He was lucky, really, as he picked it up at the bottom of a pretty gnarly descent.
I was leading, and when I noticed he was no longer behind me, it was with a heavy heart that I backtracked to find him, expecting to discover him crumpled up on the floor but instead was treated to this most impressive puncture!
