    Cushcore loosing air from the side

    Was on a ride, hit hard and even felt the wheel touching the rocks, from then on, it started to loose air from the side.

    Any ideas how to fix this?

    Probably need to replace the tire that now has a hole in it (pinch flat).

    That's my thought.
    Next up is a damaged rim.


    To test, spray the bead with water and look for a leak. Mark the position on the rim and the tire.
    Break the bead loose and rotate the tire on the rim. Reinflate.
    Spray bead with water. Is the leaky spot where the tire is marked or is the leaky spot at same place on the rim.
    If it's on the rim, the rim is bent. Likely, the leak has followed the tire though and you now have a tear in the tire.
