New inner tube problem
Hi there all,
I was in a minor crash yesterday which bent my front wheel. Having checked for any damage beyond that myself and not found any i proceeded to change the wheel and the inner tube which had been damaged, i haven't changed the outer part of the tyre itself. My problem is that the inner tube seems not to have inflated properly in one section, resulting in an area on the front wheel that is pretty flat whilst the rest of the tyre is fully inflated. Have i done something wrong and can i sort this out or do i need to go back to the shop and get another inner tube? Or is it that my tyre also needs replacing?
Also i'm having my bike professionally looked at tomorrow so hopefully they'll agree that no permanent damage was done.
Any help you can offer would be gratefully appreciated,
