Puntures per miles ...who has the best ratio?

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.


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

Bugger, you beat me to it!! :becool::biggrin:!:biggrin:

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.
