Tire blowout lost bolt out of rear brake caliper

Post by bassplayer2009 »



I was riding home the other night luckily not speeding . heard a noise and saw smoke before I could get my bike stopped rear tire blew out. I only had front brakes due to rear caliper back bolt coming out of the caliper allowing it to flip up and cut the sidewall of my rear tire. Luckily I didn't dump the bike. Had to lay it over just as I stopped. Only got a little road tar on the tailpipe. Bike is repaired I ordered up all new bolts from Bike bandit . The new bolt had lock tight on it . Hopefully that will keep it from coming undone. Has anyone else had this happen. I am glad I wasn't speeding when this happened or things might have been worse. I know now I will be checking all break bolts before taking a ride .
