New bike, tear in sidewall already
So I have a new bike (yeah!) and I really love it, but today I was cleaning it after my ride and noticed I have a tear in the sidewall of the Kenda Nevegal tires. I have ridden it maybe six times on a trail now.
I have a short dirt crit tomorrow and I think they'll survive that, but I was curious: do I boot the tire and just keep using it or am I just stuck getting a new tire? Should I be chatting with the LBS to see if I get a new tire because the bike is new?
That said, I probably will get a new tire because I have a 6 hour race next weekend. I don't want to tempt things.
