Rocks in my tire
So, I've got a repair question:
Is it bad to have tiny rocks embed themselves in your tire?
Rode over a small patch of them and didn't think much until I got off to sit down and take a break when I knocked my board over by accident and saw the rocks.
Rock buddies have joined the ride
@loaffette Really common, not much of an issue
Is that the stock Vega by chance? That tire is an avid rock collector lol.
That tire is an avid rock collector lol.
That is one of the main reason I like the treaded tires . . . you get an occasional rock stuck in the treads, but with the Vega I had to clean off the tire after every ride and it looked a lot like @LOAFFETTE's pic. That and the way the Vega just slips out from under you when you hit some wet grass, mud, or wet leaves!
@lia yes, very stock
I was hoping since I wanted to assume that the tire was thick
Was worried because my bike tire is thinner than paper and I had a single sticker poke into the inner tube of my bike and warrant a patch kit on it
Imagine a patch kit on a vega tire though, lol
@loaffette The vega is pretty tough tbh, it’s a real thick bit of rubber, great for durability. Mine did just over 7000km before I swapped it out. Ride is nicer on rounder tires though so when you want some buttery carving it’s like the #1 thing to change.
You joke but my Whisper got some tire patches and worked okay. Will admit it felt proper cursed 😅
