For the first time since I can remember....

my tires are more worn in the middle, than on the sides

I blame it on my route to work on the HOV. I've had my Duc Monster since June of last year and I haven't been able to throw it from side to side as much as I'd like

Now I have a Duc 848 just sitting in the garage because I'm putting money into other things at the moment, and I haven 't been able to get it ready for the track

Such a sad story, I just had to vent

I replaced my tires about two months ago with chicken strips two inches wide!

I'm going to remedy that on Monday.

Yep. Been that way for me since I moved to Texas and left the mountains behind. :(

It happens...

(Hey Squoddy! )

I round trip a little over 60 miles a day and there are only really 2 "curves"
I may be able to drag my toes, depending on traffic and one "fast" sweeper....

I rode 4,000 miles over the last 18 months since buying my new bike, all country/twisties, and I still got the flat ring around the rear tire.

I ended buying the Michelin Pilot Road 3 because of this. I am also going to start commuting when I start law school in the fall, so I knew a sport tire would never last!
