Just measured my front and after 3,100 miles it's at 7mm so barely any wear at all. Makes me think I messed up on measuring the front knob height when new. I'm sure the rear was at 10mm though. ...

I peaked at 6'5" but have been shrinking with age. The soles on my riding boots must be really tall and/or it's a weird camera angle because I don't think I'm that much taller than Alan.
