A sticky situation

Post  #Tag on Mon Oct 03, 2016 5:41 am

Had an interesting ride this morning. Just out of Cathcart I got a thump as I hit something and then got a wild front end wobble and squealing noise from the front wheel. On pulling up I was surprised to see this little guy. It explained the huge vibration and the squeaking noise was him constantly squealing as he went through the mudguard each rotation. I couldn't pull him off. We tried a pair of tyre levers and they didn't work so we cut his quills off flush with the tyre surface - good really because I then had an inflated tyre with 17 organic tyre plugs instead of a flat. Off we went - all good.

How did it even fit in the mudguard?

Ahh - eagle eyed as ever Chris. My guess is he must have spun 180 degrees after I stopped. In his current orientation his quills would have caught so obviously he must have been entering the mudguard extension nose first silent

Indeed - even in his, errr, not very energetic state my hands were still copping a hiding through the gloves.

Well, you don't usually find them on the road this time of year, only in April during their mating season.

Not down here - there's heaps of them running round the road like tyre shredding rabbits and active for 9 months of the year.
And did you have to bring up the mating season? Now JC is describing it as "interfering with" while Paul is serenading us Embarassed
