I have ridden 1085 miles so far this year, combined with about 650 miles last year on this bike (+ almost 2000 more on my previous bike). As you can see, all of these miles are taking their toll on my bike!

The day before yesterday, I had to buy a new chain because I had worn it out. Yesterday on my ride home, my rear tire flatted. When I looked to find the problem, I found my tire coming apart at the tread! This extends all the way around the tire.

I think it's time for new tires! :-)
