    Having your tire fail catastrophically doesn't mean you have to walk home. Last week, I was riding along when a gunshot went off. Well, it wasn't a gunshot, it was my rear tire. The casing had violently blown out. With the nearest road 10 miles away, walking wasn't an option. After unleashing...
