Had a flat on the way home during my commute yesterday. I'm running Gator HardShells, so it was a bit of a surprise. I was on the downhill leg and running about 23-25mph when the rear got mushy. I changed the tube and didn't see any punctures/damage to the tire. Couldn't find anything wrong with the tube, either. Rode the rest of the way home wondering if the new tube was going to suffer a puncture from something my inspection didn't find.

Nope, got home and found a moment to pump the bad tube up. The hole was the on the wheel side and on a seam. Ugh. I'll double-check the rim tape, patch the tube and put it back in rotation.
