    I've done about 4,000 miles since I last had a puncture.

    Dont get me started....probably 6 or 7 punctures in the last 1500 miles. Last time i went out for a long ride, over 100km, i made it to within 500 yards of my house puncture free. Then, not one, but BOTH tyres punctured at exactly the same time, I have no idea what did it, can't find anything lodged in the tyres and its only very small punctures, but boy was I p*****d off.

    So that makes my ratio one puncture per 250 miles, which sounds about right with the luck i've had recently.

    Probably something like 1 puncture in 3000 miles. At a rough guess.

    Patrick,

    Your tricycle, the red one with Bob the Builder on, has solid tyres. That's why you don't get punctures.

    no, she gets her kicks from the fact that the tyres are a bugger to put on in the first place. i'm pre-misseried.
     
  13. On the commuter I've had 2 of those P things since I bought the bike in March (2700mls). On the Sirrus I've had 1 in 2000mls (club run at the start of the year) and on the Bianchi its 0 in 1000mls.

    Four in the last last 2 rides each about 30 odd miles so currently running at 1 every 15 and a bit miles or so.
