New Shoes for the 2N
It was finally time to put new sticker front tires on the 2N and I already got em dirty. Can't say I noticed a remarkable difference in traction like those NASCAR guys do. Might have something to do with the slower speed.
The old tiress were cracked-up pretty bad. I bought new 19" tri-rib tires and tubes months ago knowing they needed to be replaced, but there wasn't any urgent need to change them. The old ones still had tread and were holding air just fine. Some other chore was always more important, until the tires actually started coming apart this weekend.
Looks like I got all the miles out of these. Hard to believe the tubes were fine and still holding air. Couldn't re-use the tubes though. They looked ok, but were probably the same age as the tires.
