wearing flat spot in front tire?
Ive been riding my wee strom to work and back for almost 2000 miles since i bought it, and have noticed that the front tire is beginning to get a flat wear spot from all the superslab and straight roads here on my 60 mile round trip commute...it was a new dunlop D607 tire when i bought the bike, and i was hoping to have it last 10000 miles (what i figure to be 2 seasons of commuting).
i do have the air pressure bumped up a few psi from recommended, if i go back to recommended will this prolong tire wear?
my back D607 is practically square, but it wasnt new on the bike when i got the bike...i figure ill need to replace it sometime in september or october..
bike seems stable for the most part, except for any hot tar strips, gets kinda squirrely on those...
should i just try to find a different route to work? most roads around here are straight, and as much as i like riding, i dont want my commute to get longer timewise..
