At a rate of 25 minutes per day, how long would it take to cut your lawn?

The Michelin have Tread Wear Indicators, too; the dimples still looked dimpled last week.

IKR? I'm still trying to decide who'd be best to portray me in the movie adaptation.

The threads are the wear indicator.

I mean, that's what I usually do - ride to the threads. I just keep an eye on the dimples so that I have an idea of when I need to start paying attention more closely.

Got invited by a la firm we use to watch the Phillies-Reds game in the firm's box next Friday. Tempting. Don't have to RSVP until Monday.

I now feel happier about trashing tires when they look used. :innocent:

Half the 14 guys on this a.m.'s ride were scratching oak mite bites.

LSS's path came back with > .3cm clear margins and negative sentinel node. Looks like they got the little bastard.

That's gotta be a relief for both of you. Good news!

Good news. Kudos. They may still want her to take an AI or Tamoxifen, depending on ER/PR status and other details.

Ride in the middle of the lane in Texas and refuse to move to the side when a dually is approaching. That's one way.

XRT and anti-estrogen therapy for certain, as far as I know. Rad and med onc consults pending.

The plastics outcome is pretty good too, but quite a change so late in life!

Oh, and here's some tire usage that'll make the frugal among us proud. I noticed this when waiting around for the boys to show up last night -

I had inspected my tires last week and thought that I had some good miles left, so this snuck up on me. I'm actually kind of glad that I didn't see this before leaving home - I would have been tempted to stay home. Instead, I just tried to be a little more conservative with rear brake and not hop too many curbs or do anything else dumb.

I started experiencing this a few years ago. Tires seem to look fine and then the tread goes all at once. I had one of those last Spring.

I worried all day and all night about hamstring attachments behind my knees before today’s metric century but I felt fine, even on the hills. It was a very sedate group with perfect weather.

If you are a high mileage rider, they can show belts not long after one notices the indicators are gone.

Yep. I just posted something similar. Dimples gone today and tread showing tomorrow.

I don't know if she has the guads, though.

That's looking like the era of BMX bikes that I fell in love with as a kid. I can't remember for sure, but I think that I had a subscription for BMX Plus. I loved thumbing through that magazine.
