Morning all.

What kind of miles are people getting out of the rear tyre ?

900 miles so far and the rear is already looking quite worn but am not sure if part of it is just because it has lost all the texture on the green centre stripe compared to the front's low wear and looks worse than it is ?

Coming form the GP4000's have been spoilt by the wear indicators on them so trying gauge what mileage can be achieved.

    I have a tendency to use skidding the rear as a bell (it has more shock factor, especially on gravel and dirt) so when I'm on shared paths a lot they wear quicker.
    I used to just ride my bike to work but now I find myself going out looking for bigger and bigger hills.

    It's a race tyre, no? High mileage will not have been in the design brief.
