Tire traction - old or cold?
It is about 46 degrees here today and I went riding for about 20 miles. I made it a habit to tap the rear brakes to see what kind of traction I have. Starting out, the rear tire didn't have much traction. About 20 miles later, same amount of traction - very little.
The factory tire has almost 9k miles on it, but it doesn't look all that worn. I was hoping to go to spring on these tires, but I may not be able to push it that far.
Would the cold temperature make the tires loose a lot of traction? I don't remember that last year.
