Gravel Sticking to Road Tires
I've been riding the same bike with the same type tires for a while. Recently I started commuting to work. In the last week or so, I've noticed that on the way to work, I get a *lot* of gravel sticking to both tires, to the point where I can see it while riding, and I can definitely hear it. The road conditions haven't changed as far as I can tell; it's not wet, but it's early (6AM), so the road is probably colder, and it could be a little moist. The roads I'm traveling are well paved; they don't have excess gravel. It just seems like the conditions are such that any little rock I run over sticks to my tires.
What's weird is that I've never had this problem with these tires, and further, I ride home using the exact same route and I have no problem then!
Has anyone else had this problem? I'm wondering if it's tire specific. My tires are Performance Fortes with kevlar. I can change the tires, but if it's not the tires I'll just have the same problem.
Thanks for your help!
