So, I just got my first flat tire today (yes, been riding only 3 or so months). A quarter-inch nail went straight thru to the tube of my rear tire.
I go to Performance and get a Forte tube replacement, install it, and now the tire seems to roll unevenly. I feel a rhythmic bump as I pedal, and it gets faster as I pedal faster. When spinning the rear tire, I can see that there are some flatter areas, thus probably leading to the unsmooth ride.
Does this mean it's time to get a new tire? Was it damaged as I was riding on it flat for a short distance? Or is the tube crap and uneven in certain areas? Is my rim bent?!!
Note: The puncture on the tire was not patched. I have 700x32c Kenda Kwikrollers and the Forte tube.
