I did set a new (low) record though, with a blistering 3.1 mph avg speed while walking the bike back to the parking lot.
Were the NN's the Snakeskin sidewall model? I just put a set of them on my bike, and ride in some rocky stuff. Wondering how long they will last... I've heard the non snakeskin ones are very prone to sidewall tears.
