Sounds like a defect. Contact Kenda.dbblackdiamond said:Hi,
I bought a 2.35 Stick-E Nevegal as a front tire and was really happy with it for a couple of rides. I went for an epic ride last weekend and once back at the house, I realized that the tire had developed a bulge on the sidewall. It sticks out maybe a mil, is a couple of cms long. I felt the sidewall and it is definitely thinner at that place than around it.
I took the tire off as I don't think it is safe to ride it. Do you concur?
My second issue is that the tire is practically new, so what's the recourse in those cases? Do I have to send it to Kenda for replacement? As much as I don't like the Nevegal as a rear tire, because it is too slow, I kinda like it as a front tire. The Stick-E has plenty of grip and feel sure footed.
Thanks a lot.
