A bump in the sidewall of a new Tire??
While my Bicycle is actually some months old, due to a knee replacement, it only has about 12 miles on it.
Qhile wiping the dust off the poor neglected Bike, I noticed that my New Rear Mathathon has a bulge in the sidewall in one place (thought the rim was out of true already til I looked closer).
Now, on cars and big trucks - this is really bad news! Meaning the tire will soon FAIL!
Is this the case on a Bicycle?
Thoughts anyone? It holds air fine, etc...but it is a very large bulge!
