I suspect you might want to expand on your story there before we all go crazy speculating how that happened! Brand of tyre, tube, wheel and pressure please!
Ok, heres what happened.
I was on a cycling road, meaning its a smooth road, no bumps, no downhills, no curves. I was cruising at around 35~kmph, and suddenly my tire just pops off the rims.
The Rims were Campy Boras, and I was using Continental Sprinter Tiers with Tublar Cement.
Tires were inflated to 150PSI, which is optimum according to the website.
So again...I have no idea of the culprit.
And no insurance company offers a "crash insurance" for the bike itself in where I live. Sad sad...
