40-Year Old Tire

The tread was fine, it was the sidewall that cracked – all brittle and crispy. The tire was a Schwinn Puff High Pressure Road Racer on a Varsity with lots of French parts. While we may celebrate Urban cycling and the amount of bikes like this on the roads, guys in the shop are not thrilled to work on 40-year old tires and irreplaceable parts.
