Re: How do you scrub down new tires?

You might try just taking it easy for the first 50 miles or so. Only takes an hour. Just enjoy the scenery instead of riding like a bat out of hell. You might not have any scenery where you live. So put on a walkman and listen to the Doobie Brothers instead.

Or you could "scrub" the back tire by doing a long burnout while rocking the bike from side to side. Scream like a girl as loudly as you can while doing this.

Then do some stoppies.

Another possibility is getting a hand drill and a wire brush and scuffing up the tire, like Buzglyd does to hide the chicken strips.

I'm sure MR. ALLCAPS has even better suggestions.
