Warning - this is a really stupid newbie question!
I popped my back tire today. Since it wasn't just a small puncture, and the tire itself has a 1/4 inch slit in it, do I have to replace the tire as well as the tube? I'd much rather not replace both, but will do so if I need to.
My fellow cycling co-worker already went home today, and I need an answer before I leave tonight.
