  • I think it's time to retire

    I wanted to see if I could wear the tire down until I can see the air, but that would probably be a bad idea and cause an UPD.
    And a popped tube.


    I wore my rubber out. Insert YOUR joke here....

    Ride it, don't slide it?


    Anyway, looks like you came pretty darn close to seeing air there...

      It doesn't look two tired.

              Considering the weight of the tread on a 26" Duro, I really wouldn't be surprised if it's about 500g lighter than a new one at this point!

                    It only looks bad on that one side.

                      Looks like Mrfixit's tire could have benefited from being rotated when it started to show wear in one area.
                      Here is a past thread on the advantages of rotating tires and/or cranks to even out tire wear:
