So I hit that pot hole a few weeks ago and made that complaint to Caltrans. When it happened I was worried that I messed up my tire, but when I looked at it when I got home I did not see anything. I should have looked closer, since I missed this:
The reason I missed it the first time was because I was primarily looking at the other side of the tire. I should have known to check both sides. Since the damage is to the left side, it is also the side that is leaning down when the bike is on it’s kickstand. It might have not seemed like much if the tire was in this position.
Oh well, lesson learned. The tire is still holding air, but I’ll need to get a new rim soon. I’ll let you know how it goes. I’m pretty sure my awesome mechanics have a plan already.
