My front tire is only showing wear on about 3/4 of the actual tread, mostly on left side. If it were on a car I would say the front end is out of alignment. There are not extra options on the bike to shift the weight to the left. I don't notice it pulling to one side or the other. Could the front end be out of align?

That thread makes me fell little better. At least I'm pretty sure there is nothing wrong with the ride!
