Those things do have a habit of showing up unexpectedly. I've replaced two pretty new E3s due to road damage. Just last week on a ride with some friends we discovered two cuts in his tires. One each in the front and back. The back one became a 1.5" flap by the time he got home. Last Saturday we changed them in my garage and got a better look. Good thing he had new tires on hand already, I wouldn't have wanted to ride around the block on those he had. While we were at it I discovered his rear caliper sleeve was just about completely frozen in place. So I cleaned up the sleeve and donated a spare pair of rear pads to his project. We sent him home with a much improved bike.
