    LLF and flat tires?

    So I'm sure this is just my bad luck, but has anyone getting lots of flats in the general vicinity of the Turning Mill Road parking lot at LLF? My last three rides there, I have gotten a flat literally as I rolled out to the lot at the end of the ride.

    Miles of singletrack, rocks, and no issues, but riding past the gate back to the car.... HISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSflat.

    Just curious to know if this is my bad luck or if anyone else has had this, too. It's just nuts that it's only been an issue there and it's always the same spot, but only coming back into the lot - never leaving.

    Did you ride by the "junkyard" where all that rusting crap is? There was a ton of broken glass all over that section, nasty!

    I noticed that too. Lots of glass. Looks like someone did it on purpose.

    You might new tires

    I had issues with my tire going flat this past sunday, but I attribute it to poor sealing on a tubeless more than anything else.
