Went out riding last night and just cleaned my bike this morning and noticed theres a thumb size slit in the sidewall on my rear tire, im running maxxis minions duel ply 2.35, its not really deep but u can see the fabric inside, is it worth getting a new tire or can i fix it or will it be ok? cheers!
gaffer tape on the inside sounds a good idea, ill give that a go, hopefully its not gone all the way through as i said it just seems like a small slit on the top layer because u can see all the stitching on the inside of the ” duel ply ” ill take it off and have a look cheers
I had a similar issue. As a temporary repair I gaffer taped a bit of old toothpaste tube into the inside of the tyre just in case and then whilst the tyre was inflated I put araldite across the tear as some protection. Ran the tyre for another couple of thousand kms without an issue.
