Does this look safe to you? Never seen one this bad. Will it disintegrate?


To answer: No, me neither, probably.

Chicken.

Ride it as it is, if the tyres become slicks as the ride goes on, you'll just get faster.

I've never owned a bike with disc brakes, and I'm alive, at least I was the last time I looked. :wink:
