I had a shop convert my Avanti mtb to an ebike. The tyres were replaced (from knobbly to road) as part of the job. I’ve ridden it maybe 5 hours tops for a 3 commutes and a tame off-road ride locally.
I’ve just noticed this split on the outside of the tyre, close to the rim. Lucky I did, because I was just about to take my baby out for a ride, after recently getting a seat added to the back.
What could cause this? I have had my tubes pumped to max 60psi... the bike it stored in an outdoor room that can get warm in summer (though usually doors are open).
