Baby Needs New Shoes

I cleaned up my bike this morning, in hopes that the bike shop I like will be open and have my tire in stock. And then I took a picture of the rear tire part that looks like a flat waiting to happen.

I have to admit, it's very cool seeing a bit of how the tire is constructed, with all this cloth of some sort. The tires look like they have some rubber stuff still, so they're maybe not as close to a flat as I thought last night, but I still don't think I'd feel very confident riding around on them.

My thanks to Brian for the Sheldon Brown suggestion. As always, it's good to learn more about bikes!
