no anomalies in the material of the inside of the tire sides like sharp or abrasive?

i checked it real well and found nothing out of place, cleaned it a bit too. just a mystery.

 

went riding today and the tape held up, and i also am on another brand of tube now so that could helpful, too.

everything looked normal, even had a spoke recently replaced since it began.

 

can't figure it out. defective batch of tubes? just not sure.

 

Is the puncture on the tube in the same spot every time?

i thought it was. but this last time it was in a whole different section. always the rim side, though.

 

the day i decided to try gorilla tape, i was pumping a fresh tube up and i didn't get the bike out of the garage before it burst again!

That's an impressive accomplishment. 

 

What's involved with participation in something like that? 

Qualifications ?

  > requirements to participate; physical and bicycle

Sponsorship/fees ?

  > lodging, food, roadside assistance

Deadline ?

it's pretty wild. This was his last marathon style competition. He's in his mid 30's also, if not late. He's done this before, and also done a pretty wild race in Europe as well.

 

otherwise he lives the same dumb tech/career life that i do too. wife is a script editor/writer, two cute ass kids. just a wholesome ass man who entertains my dumb shit sometimes while continuing to be an absolute fucking monster on a bike.

qualifications for the RAAM, not sure. I just know no one would be able to question his bona fides.

was riding my bike downtown friday evening and was "doored", i think for the first time ever. and i am noticing more pain when i breath deep or laugh, causing me to think my ribs are bruised. ouch, but just going to give it time to heal. can still ride in the meantime too.

 

for those who don't know about "dooring" in the bike world, this is it:
