Ctrl + f no general questions?!
Is this cause for a new tyre? Inner tube is still intact.

Put 30psi more in the tube than you normally would and look at the hole, if the tube visibly starts to bulge through then you should replace the tire. If not, the cut isn't all the way through the casing and the tire's fine to keep using, just check on it every few rides.
Would you guys recommend the Access Raptor from Performance Bicycle as a first bike?
