Ok, so this is strange, but has anyone ever suffered a "puncture" on a turbo trainer?, I havent pulled the tyre off yet, but I doubt there is a hole in anything....just so strange

Yes, several, including one catastrophic failure. Heat related maybe?

Yarp - could be a number of factors, esp if it's been repaired before. Lots of friction going on there between tyre and roller with no air rushing past to cool it...

My tyre once exploded on the turbo trainer. Something to do with me getting the inner tube caught between the tyre and the wheel, the GF had a shock to be sure…..

Check the tyre. If it looks like a snake has poisoned your inner tube, check your room for snakes, and if you find none, then it's likely to be a tyre pinch. This is caused by low pressure inner tubes wheedling their way between the tyre and wheel. Otherwise get out of the house ASAP.

….Or, if it's a single hole, it could be you have crap between your tyre wall and the inner tube.

Then again, what with the weather we had last year a large pot hole in your turbo trainer may have developed. But that really is an outside shot - but call your council….

Yep! Think it was down to a nick or pinch that just needed a bit of weight to set it free. Random as!
