I rode the last month of my bike's life with a tire that has the plastic under the tread poking through. I promised myself I would get a new set of tires when the current tires were worn down, but still never got around to it. I only had one flat over the second half of the summer, and that is when I noticed the orange spots poking through.

Then, before I got around to changing the tires, the frame cracked at the driveside chain stay. I have a replacement frame, but I have been waiting for more than a month to put all the parts on it. The old frame has been sawed up and is currently being used for training of NDE professionals, and as a couple of homemade tools for my workshop.

Also, on my mountain bike, my suspension fork kicked the bucket two years ago and so I have been riding it full rigid, all the while planning to put on a new suspension fork at some undefined point in the future.
