Oops! Well, I guess I need to pay a little more attention. Two good things at least.
1) I had some old tires hanging in the garage to use until I get new ones. They’re actually 700 x 25′s that I took off the tandem because we kept having flats on them, so I hope I’m not asking for trouble. I commuted on a similar pair for a long time on my road bike with no problems, so I’m crossing my fingers and holding my breath.
2) I got lucky to find it when I did. If I wasn’t (over)due for a chain cleaning, I wouldn’t have had the bike up on the rack where I could see the tire from under the fender. That’s the only drawback to my fenders…I can’t see the condition of the rear tire without turning the bike upside down or getting under it.
