Tire problems

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Tire problems

Hello to everyone

I have the following problem, my tires are Continental Speed Ride in 42mm with more or less 1500km. They started to show the threads in the side wall but I do not know if this is a big problem. I couldn’t find any advice about it because is very different to the cases in the forum. Any advice ?

Conti tires will do that. Just carefully snip off the threads.
