    Looks like its set up singlespeed, the chain is probably a little loose and the bike is on its side...gravity

    What are the odds of that happening?

    I wonder if the tyre would have flatted if your rims weren't drilled? Air loss looks like it would have been mainly through there.

    Would you be so kind as to go out again and repeat this with an undrilled rim?

    yes it was an expensive,fortunatley i have a good (or bad) sense of humour.
    As far as the leak , it was only leaking on the tire side. and to answer the question about the drilled out rim it wouldnt seal im sure, this is the third time I have seen this type of flat.(not me a friend)that made me laugh too.

    Very nice, I've had five of those this year, but none all the way through the rim!
