Help! It is rubbing all the rubber off my back tyre!
Anyone know what might be going on here?
I've just used this 2 or 3 times and loads of tiny shreds of rubber are rubbing off the back tyre.. there is a noticeable bald-line on my back tyre now..
I am definitely still in the amateur/weakling category of cyclists, so this isn't due to some super-hard power-riding.
Any advice is much appreciated.
Hi, i've noticed a small amount of rubber on mine but nothing as drastic as yours, i think some rubber coming off is normal unless you use a trainer tyre???. Maybe it's how you have it adjusted or the quality of your tyre. I have a Hutchinson tyre on just now and it does appear to be ok although it is looking a bit "shiny". I have used my trainer about the same as you. I know it's not much but i hope it helps.
