So, I plucked a nail of the street today and was looking around to replace the tire so I could ride to the lakes today. Met up with a buddy of mine from work and I met a friend of his. He mentioned that he had a set of these in his basement and said that if I were going to replace the front, might as well do the rear as well.
I was iffy at first cuz I havent done much looking around at tires as I have 5xx miles on the bike. If I was going to ride, I guess my best chance was to buy the set off him.
I just got in to look around to compare a bit on the tires I just got and it looks like I made out pretty damned good. He offered to set the pair for $200, and not knowing much anything about them, I took the deal. Nice guy it turns out, as he probably could have taken me.
Its been raining since then, so I really havent gone out to play yet. But all in all, it looks like a good deed was done for the day. :cheers and be safe!
