So I slicced my sidewall on my brand new Maxis Igniters 29er tires. THey were only about 5 rides old and still has the "nipples" on the tire side I had to put a tubbe in it to get back to my car and it leaked STANS all over the inside of the car.

I brought it back to the slipery pigs shop and the red head chick said it wasnt her fault that i ran the tire into sharp rocks and damaged it. She says that warrantys dont cover that stuff!!!! I CALL TOTAL BS!!! ITS AND OFF ROAD TIRE AND SHOULD BE DESIGNNED TO HANDLE SHARP ROCKS. DONT YOU AGREE??!?!?!:madman: :madman: :madman: :madman: :madman: :madman: :madman: :madman: :madman: :madman: :madman:

Dude... that's the price of riding in Arizona. Get used to it. If the slice is not too big, you can patch it from the inside and it will be good for tubeless use. Otherwise, buy a new tire - use that Slippery Pig coupon you were willing to give away in another thread.

You cut your sidewall, get over it, and get a new tire. It's part of mountain biking.

Everyone has had this problem at some point in their riding lifetime! I can tell you that I have cut probably 10-15 tires in the past 15 years of riding out here, it comes with the conditions that we ride in. You really need to grow up and act like an adult if you have the mental capacity to do so.

Also the warranty applies to defects in materials and workmanship of the tire, not your inability to avoid a rock that can and does rip out sidewalls. If you can't handle the possibility of equipment damage from the terrain and conditions that are present in mountain biking then you need to sell your mountain bike and buy a road bike.... oh wait the same can happen on a road bike due to debris in the road, nevermind just sell all ofyour bikes and never buy a bike again and confine your self to your couch.

Whats a couppon?

I hate to sound like a shill for Spech but they are standing behind their upper end tires S-works fast-trak LK's and and the "Control" fast-trak LK's, even sidewall tears. 44.99-59.99

Expensive but awesome all around
