I’m in desperate need of some help so I hope I’ve come to the right place. Mods, if this is in the wrong place, please feel free to move it.
I’ve got a T2240 trainer and am using a Tacx Trainer Tyre.
During my rides last winter, I started to get a lot of punctures in a very short space of time. I think I had five or six in total over for or five rides.
Every time, these punctures are pin sized holes in the centre of the inner tube on the outside (roller side).
I tried absolutely everything to fix it at the time, but have had no success and have just had my first puncture after my third ride back on Zwift since stopping in April.
I’ve tried patching the tube (twice), I’ve tried two separate, brand new tubes, two wheels (a Cero AR30 and a cheaper Shimano rim, both of which are well taped and smooth on the inner face of the rim), different brands of tube and also had Tacx send me a replacement tyre, in case it was that. Nothing’s worked!
The roller is clean, the tyre is clean, my tyre pressure is at 105psi which seems optimal in everything I read and calibrates perfectly, in the centre of the scale.
I ride in a cold garage throughout the winter so I wondered if there’s a big difference in roller and tyre heat but neither ever feel more than luke warm, even after a long or hard ride.
Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this issue? Should I ask Tacx for a replacement trainer? I’m completely lost and frustrated at the moment!
Any help is massively appreciated.
