Did I ruin my GP 4000 tire? Is it safe to ride?
I was trying to get a tiny piece of metal out of the tire that caused a flat and it was to small to grip with pliers and to sharp to get my fingers near it (already sliced my pinky) so i tried to flick it out like you would a splinter, using a razor knife and when I got the piece out I was left with some threads(like one single frayed thread and one next to it showing) showing on the interior of the tire, centered in the tire. Is this safe to ride? Or do i have to spend yet even more money on this sport?
for the price of one tire I could get some new running shoes and be set for a lot longer...
