Default Re: NEW... a journey recounted in paragraphs!

While it's important to be sure a tire is seated properly, that's not related to pinch flats - which are normally due to under inflation, severe impact or in this case, potentially the poor sidewall design of the "KENDA KROSS Plus" tires, which I've had & failed to be impressed with lol;

pinch flat
A flat tire caused by riding over a rock or pothole and bottoming out the tire and pinching and puncturing the tube against the rim. Also called a "snakebite" because it causes side-by-side cuts in the tube that resemble a snakebite. A common cause is riding with too little air pressure.
