Hi All! Long time no post! A gotta holla about these tires! I'm using the Continental Gator Hard Shell 700X25 on my road bike. About 2 months age I noticed a small cut in my front tire. It was about 3/32" long across the top of the tread. I’ve been keeping an eye on it and it didn’t seem to be getting bigger. After about 450 mi., I decided to poke around in there with an awl. To my surprise there was a piece of glass way down in there. I started to dig it out and, of course, it broke into pieces and I didn’t get it all out. What I’m amazed at is I am sticking this awl in at least 1/8" and still feel a sizeable piece of glass in there yet, and this after A LOT OF DIGGING. All the while, this thing is not losing a bit of air (checked with soapy water). I’m not sure whether to keep digging and risk puncturing the tire, or just riding it until it goes on it’s own since there is about 1/8" of rubber over the piece of glass. I sure don’t want this thing to blow 25 mi away from home. WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
