    Reminder: check your ride before you ride!

    I don't know about you guys, but sometimes I get complacent and neglect checking out my bike before each ride. Tonight, I was topping off my Stan's when I noticed the following:

    If you can't tell, there is a bubble in the tread and it is very soft. I doubt I would have made it through the ride, and with it being a front tire... It could have been nasty. I feel lucky to have seen it tonight, as I don't think I would have caught it otherwise.

    Anyways, just wanted to remind others to check your rig! Enjoy your rides tomorrow, I'll be on the road bike

    yep, looks like your running a Ikon. Had the same issues with 5 of those tires. NO MORE Ikons for me.

    Actually it's a panaracer rampage. It has been solid and I love it. Been running it around 5-6 months and probably 4-500 miles on it. But yeah, I'm bummed about it.
