Yes, a noob question. Got some Schwalbe Big Apple tires for commuting for the express purpose of avoiding what I hit yesterday... homeless dude 40 oz beer shatterings on my bike path. A nice 1/4" perfect wedge sliced neatly through the rubber & kevlar and punctured the tube. Can these tires be repaired?
I get and already have patched the tube, just concerned the slash will degrade the tire... or will it hold up.. is there something preventative I need to do?
