Well I was heading out to the gym, when I got there I parked the bike and by chance happened to look at the rear tire. Thats when I saw what I thought was a small rock but instead is a nail. I'd say it's about a 6d and i'm not sure the length. Right now its still in there and I havent lost any pressure yet. What should I do, I really dont want to get a new tire because I just got this one about 2 months ago.

Thanks Nate

if you ride hard and do all that fun stuff, get a new one asap. You dont want pressure building in the tire when the heat goes up and pushes that nail out and bam, you've got yourself a flat or blown tire.

If you ride the streets and just commute, you can probably patch it until you get more funds to replace it.

Personally, as soon as i see a nail, im replacing the tire.
