IS that line in the tire centre telling me something?

Holy hell where did it come from? I was sure I had another 10k kms in that tire.
Its a pilot road 2 I dont think they make em anymore. Oh a new tire. But which tire. Im going to go circular again cos that seems to work well.

You have discovered the secret of obtaining a new bike without great expense. New tires.

I change your tires, you buy them on the web, I do the work $40, trying to keep riders on the road.

You want to go really crazy, renew the suspension and put new tires on.

I just bought Road 4's but their up to Road 5's.
