Look at the reviews for this Tire. Ritchey must have a bad batch of tires floating around. I want to hear from anyone that has knowledge of these type of blowouts. On 7/11/2007 I had the worst crash of my life. Two day old Tom Slick on my front wheel. Tire blowout with 3 inch sidewall failure. Help me save other athletes from these tires until the bad ones have been recalled. [email protected]
