New tires

My back tire was worn after 9000 miles. My front tire wasn't bad, but I decided to replace both with Metzler ME880's. I kept the same size in front, but changed to a 180/70 in back. It's a few millimeters wider and about 3/4" shorter.

Here is the bike with its new shoes.

I had the tires mounted and balanced at The Cycle Shack in Oolitic.
