Welcome to 2K6! 80 F here today so I made my usual 20 miler & sweated mucho!! I guess I've gotten acclimated to the "cold" 70 degree temps.
I'm about to put some "knobby" tires on my single-speed so I can have more traction in the dirt. Does using knobbies on the pavement wear them excessively? Also, I've read that the "V" profile of the knobbies should point forward on the rear tire and backward on the front. Is this so?
Finally, I'm waiting for my wheels to arrive so I can finish my "fat-boy" touring bike. I'd planned on using 700c x 32 WTB Slickisaurus tires on this one. Any other suggestions for a good, wide 700c tire? I think my existing WTB tires may be somewhat worn. How do you determine when a tire is due for replacement?
Thanks and Happy New Year to all!
