    Slice in the tread what to do?

    I have a couple 1 inch slices in the casing of my ghetto tubeless tires probably from off camber slate these slice do not penetrate all the way through and I am wondering if I should try to super glue them or use vulcanizing sealent on the outside or if I should leave them alone

    Photos look similar to those taken of the surface of Mars! Were you riding there, did you see any Mountain Lions?

    I'd say buy a new tire and put it on as needed.

    This is the joy of having more than one bike: you can just go ride a better maintained bike.
    Take the long cut, we'll get there eventually.

    try the vulcanizing sealant... I've patched the outside of my tires where knobs have peeled off. Just make sure to clean the area well, and use three or more coats of sealant with 5 minutes in between to dry.

    PBR - the southside of nelson looked clear the north side looked pretty damp so it should be good by the weekend I didnt want to chance it this last weekend though

    Debaser - Yup my stable is pretty full right now but sram has my totem, and there is a ride at redstone tonight see you there?

    Subliminal - thanks for the tip I will do
