I'm at home burning some "use it or lose it" vacation time before the end of the year so I took a little spin around the Blue Hills reservation this afternoon. Warm and sunny, but pretty heavy traffic.

I love the new tires I got a couple of weeks ago! I guess the old ones were worn flat because I'd have to horse the bike into turns and then it would feel like it was tipping over. These are sooo much more linear. Little push, little turn; more push, more turn.

I guess the moral of the story is that if you do a lot of commuting (like I do) then you might not get your money's worth from your tires since it's better to replace them when they're worn flat, even if they look like they've got tread left. Probably not a big revelation for those of you with more miles under your belts than I've got, but this yankee likes to get his money's worth. Evidently tires aren't a good place to skimp.
