Nagai-san has repaired my Cervelo and I could take a short spin along the Tsurumigawa close to my house. I was feeling pretty good, although I still could not brake with my left hand. After 20 kilometers or so something happened: Another flat rear tire.

I didn't even curse. This has by now become such a regular experience that I just resign to my fate, go down to business, exchange the tube and repair the punctured one later at home. Is this some kind of divine intervention, giving me some hidden hints that I should stop riding my bike?

At least this time the cause was clear. A metal shard in the tire which I luckily found before exchanging the tube. Even a Continental GP7000 tire is not perfect
