well i like to take corners rather aggressively so if i shouldn't take a chance then i won't. this bike isn't for commuting.I would say yes- as long as it were for commuting and not dicking around. Old rubber hardens as chemical dries or leaches, causing the chemical reaction for grip not to happen as the tire warms. Look out for any dry rot- see it and junk 'em.
And so some Einstein doesn't jam me for not saying it- not in any water whatsoever!
you need more power. :lol:i never said anything about aggressive riding in the rain with the slicks. im not one of them stupids. but one thing i DO know is that every time i rode in the rain with the slicks i did not have any traction issues. they were actually harder to break loose than regular tires. i TRIED to get them to break loose in a straight line and they wouldnt.
