Yeah, Jay, that's just about what it's gonna run me for new 880's front and rear installed. Maybe a few bucks less. I got such a good deal on the bike, spending $500 on tires will still leave me way ahead on the deal.
And I thought I was gonna save money riding a bike to work! HA! Should have read the forums, first... but now I'm hooked and it's too damn late to turn back now!
Thanks for the heads up, Meischa! While I was at the shop I was talking to my service guy about the bike following the grooves. All of a sudden the owner chimes in and starts trying to sell me on a fork truss, saying that would solve all my problems and that new tires probably weren't gonna do it by themselves. Is this just some kind of voodoo snake oil or is he on the up and up?
