Do you every try to do entire rides on the painted stripe? How about on the inside edge of the stripe? There's a road in SoCal called Yerba Buena. The pavement is a mess and the easiest way up is to work the paint in the middle of the road. It really does make you smooth. You have one of those on your rides? Go out and ride the white stripe as much as you can. Make your front wheel the smoothest most predictable thing ever. Its the nicest thing you can do for the person behind you.
