My 520 came with Bontrager tires. The rear tire has a flat spot that I can see is recessed more into the rim, causing an annoying bump while riding. Any ideas on how to fix this other than getting new tires? I've tried re-setting, re-inflating. Nothing seems to work.

I had what sounds like a similar problem; on close inspection, I found that the rim tape was slightly askew in one place which caused the tyre bead to be a bit high on one side and low on the other side at that point. Careful repositioning of the tape (yes, it was Velox™) fixed the problem.

Wil, you're a genius.
I repositioned the Velox and now have a smooth roll.
