Any one syllable word made of any combination of 'snap', 'crack', or 'pop' will give you a good idea of what carbon failure on impact sounds like. And yes, that includes "CRAP!" I was going top speed through heavy rain down the north side of Briarcliff Drive when I caught a chuckhole. Tire held great- the rim seems to have taken the brunt of the impact. That's the (+) I'm taking out of this- that the tire held and I didn't go down.
Lesson: Remove shades in rain at first drops.
