After 2 years of riding my LHT, I've finally gotten skinny. It's just not the skinny I was hoping for.
At a little over 5,000 miles, my rear Marathon Supreme bought the farm.
I just ordered a new set of tires on Friday, and was hoping it would last until the new ones came, but it was not to be. It had developed a pretty good sized bulge so I didn't think it would be safe to push my luck with it.
Good news though, Trish still had the original tires that came with her Trucker in the garage, so at least I have something to use until mine arrive later this week.
Bad news, they're only 1.5 inches wide compared to the 2.0 inches that I have come to know and love.
This is what a proper tire should look like.
This is not.
Can you say "pinch flat."
It's a miracle I can stay upright.
In a few more days I'll be fat once again.
