Quick question: I recently noticed a ~.5 inch cut in my rear tire, to the side of the tread. I'm currently running Schwalbe Luganos. I usually replace my tires when the treads start to really flatten out; around 3000 miles or so for the rear. I've been riding this rear tire for probably about 2000 miles, and it looks as they otherwise have a fair bit of life left.
However, given the photo of this cut, would anyone recommend replacing the tire prematurely? I think I can see some cords, but the tire doesn't seem to be bulging at all.photo (22).jpg
