Re: tire wear question
I went on a serious ride today, probably the hardest I've pushed my blade through the twisties since I got it a year ago. I just switched to a 180 sportec rear, and it seams quicker and more planted in the turns.
When I got home from the ride I noticed the sides of the tire, from near the center to about 1/8' from the edge is roughed up like a used eraser. It's rough like it was worked with sandpaper, but with no oily discoloration like track take-offs. This front tire has already been thru 2 rear tires, so I know it's time to get a new one. I'm just curious about this type of wear, if it's normal for pushing hard on the street, or if it's fried.
ps- I scraped my toe today even though I was up on the balls of my feet on the pegs; I'm pretty excited in a very squidly way!
