During today's ride on the rollers (elite e-motion), I noticed a sudden bumping feeling from the back. I first tought it was a flat, but tyre seemed OK. I continued the ride but things got worse. I shortened the ride to see what was happening and was quite surprised to see the cause. Tyres have 4500km and have been switched once between front and back:

Same thing happened on 2 places: :shock:

Does it have to do with the veloflex warning not to use those on carbon clinchers? Is it bad luck, or simply tyres that where ready to be binned? They were still in very good condition, not 1 cut, nor 1 flat :thumbup: I had planned to keep them until km 5000, luckyly it happened on the rollers and not midway a century ride next weekend :evil:

That happened to me on the trainer as well. Never had an issue on the road though, I have had them last 5000km+ no issues on carbon wheels, but once I put them on the trainer that happens

This was on rollers, not a trainer. So a lot less stress on tyres! And not their first time on rollers too;

I've run Corsa/Master exclusively for who knows how long. That's never happened to me. Sounds like some strange force pulling the tire in a weird manner on a trainer/roller setup. I always wondered why some brands make tires for roller/trainer setups.

There are specific tires to use on rollers and trainers. Certainly light tires with flexible cases (like the Veloflex) are not suitable.
