Which is the noise made as this rim gave out (thankfully, while still at home before heading out on a club ride yesterday).

"Giving out" seems a bit of an understatement

Went off like a gunshot.

It happened to me once on my mountain bike in the Peaks- downhill rocky trail - BANG - like a shotgun going off - then oh s**t head first into a drystone wall - no control as tyre & tube fight to see which is going to make the biggest tangled mess - outcome dented helmet (never ride without one now!!) dislocated thumb, torn waterproof (new) knackered tyre. All in all an expensive episode. Went for ceramic rims after that (was before discs were comon place). Sounds like man from the north had a lucky escape. Keep checkin' 'em. Mind you that rim didn't seen too worn
