So, i received the E1 shifters today. They came in a kit meant to replace the shifters for those who already have AXS brake calipers.

They also returned my Tyre Wiz units. Unfortunately, the rear one leaks now. It must’ve been damaged during the blowout. Another Tyre Wiz that I have always reads exactly 14.5psi high. What are you going to do?

Anyway, they definitely took care of me as a customer, although I’ve heard nothing else from the about the cause of the blowoff.

I think I need a break from SRAM at least on my road bike. I did pick up the basic Lauf Seigla with Apex AXS and I really like it a lot. But, for my primary road bike, I’ve gone back to Shimano and Enve for now.

As such, probably going to sell these fancy new shifters.

If you're using the original TyreWiz, replacing one or both of the smaller O-rings, and applying a tiny bit of grease around the O-rings, might fix the leak. I have damaged the o-rings in the past when pulling/inserting the TyreWiz gauge onto the TyreWiz valve stem and have received replacement O-rings from Quarq. Eventually, i got the specs of the O-rings from Quarq and ordered a bunch from Aliexpress. How often do you compare what TyreWiz tells you with another gauge? My front TyreWiz now reads 3 PSI higher and i only found out after comparing with a Topeak digital gauge.

It actually seems to have spontaneously fixed itself. Idk…. Thanks for the tip. I’ll see if I can fix the leak on the busted one.

I check it against my pump every time I inflate.

Are there any known blowoffs on the 454? The 353 is the usual culprit

I had a blow*out* on my 353s yesterday.

Heading down a fast and rough hill, I seem to have picked up what looks like a pinch flat, although the position of it doesn't look quite right for a pinch, it kinda looks like a piece of flint or somehting may have made it between the tyre and the rim.

Pressure loss was pretty much instant and it took a long time to slow down.

Tyre stayed on the bead.

No real point to this, just figured I'd share a positive story 😂

A flat tire staying seated long enough to stop isn’t a plus. It’s the expectation.
