Torn sidewall

Well just realised I had a torn sidewall upon finishing my ride today. Was a nice lightweight Crossmark Exception too Sad Only had done a few hundred km on it. They sure are skinny sidewalls on the Exception series. The most abuse this tyre got would have been going down Andersons.

Luckily it didn't blow out on the trail. I just saw the tube bubble out a bit when I got home.

pikey's picture the tube, somebody left there finger in it!

It's not just a finger, you can also see a nail in his tyre.

The Exception series are really a race tyre only - they're notorious for torn sidewalls.
