Me again ...
I purchased a front Schwalbe Blizzard tyre from my LBS other day and fitted it for a ride that I conducted today (Richmond to Hawes and back - Im a very lucky lad to live in the yorkshire dales).. thing Is on fitting the tyre, and not really checking it ive noticed a "bubble" perhaps more of a kink in the tyre. I didnt notice it but did obviously when out on the road. It made a "bump" everytime the tyre revolutioned. Now I read into this and basically on looking on the inside of this tyre there is a small knick right where the bubble was (I also refitted the tyre and blew it up, it confirmed that this knick in the tyre was the problem..
Basically im supposed to be out again tomorrow and the LBS is shut, so before I can go and voice ones displeasure at being sold a disfunctional tyre I was wondering if their is a fix for this? The knick is literally just a knick. It hasnt gone right through the tyre by any stretch of the imagination? I read you can cut an old tyre and place the rubber over the knick?
Again, thank you so much.. Big ride tomorow, dont fancy missing it
