I hit a raccoon 2 weeks ago and one of its ribs punctured my front tire. I was stuck in the middle of nowhere with a flat, so I had a truck tow me to the nearest bike shop (Valley Cycles in Winchester VA...big time thumbs up for customer service).
$350 later (tow, new tire, plus mounting), I had a new Dunlop 404 (which I do not like), and I was a little peeved at how my long ride down Skyline would have to be curtailed for the day.
My rear tire (still the original TW) just turned 6,000 miles today, and is starting to get a little square. I'll be replacing it in approximately 500 miles for my trip to Deal's Gap next month.
