i just traded in my 32knobbies for 25slicks. first time ever riding slicks. i heard somewhere that they should be broken in. does that just mean that film of rubber/whatever that comes on new tires should be rubbed off? i was taking a turn on wet walkway when it slid out from under me. i think due to that factory film on the side angle of the tire.. moreso than wet ground or turning factors. definitely wasn't going very fast. certainly not turned off of slicks. the ride is a dream! but oy, can't see myself riding for about a week on account of the bruising and bleeding.
