Not quite sure what is happening to my tyres.
On friday night riding home from work my tyre had a sudden bulge in it. It looked as if something had been rubbing on the side wall. I checked to see if anything was rubbing but nothing was coming into contact with the side wall.
Today I was riding on different wheels and the exact same thing has happened. All the little bits of rubber that stick out the tyre from being in the mold have warn off. Again I check if it rubs on anything and it dosnt.
Any ideas as to what is happening?

After putting on (correct pressure / etc) a brand new continental 4000S I found two ~1cm bulges before I’d even had a chance to use them.
I put some boot patches on the inside and they’ve been fine for the last few weeks or so, until the inevitable fiery death at the bottom of a cliff / etcPosted 4 years ago
It was on my road bike, CAAD10.
The tyres were both Planet X Rage ones with the Kevlar band.
First wheelset are Aksium’s and the set today are American Classic 420s.
My track pump has been playing up so perhaps they had the wrong pressure.
Other than that I am completely stumped.Posted 4 years ago
