Yabbutt... ugly is forever.
not when there are no mirrors around. or other kind souls like Gerry.
You want some nice riding clincher tires that last a long time?
Try a set of these in 27C: http://www.competitivecyclist.com/v...ferralID=f7b4337c-f527-11e6-b294-0050569406b5
The rear Open Pave just started showing it's first sign of thread yesterday at 4100 miles. Only 1 flat which occurred at 1600 miles due to a rusty spring which would have punctured any tire. I've never had a tire last anywhere near this long or ride this comfy. At 75-80psi it really smoothes out the bumps. It may not be the lightest tire out there, but you can still hang with the fast crowd and set KOMs with it. At least, that has been my experience. For $26 it is a steal. It is THE most impressive tire I've tried in 17,800 miles on the Roubaix.
That a lot of tire for the money.
I try to avoid mirrors and cameras too
Too nice of a day not to play hooky. These 27.5x4.5 tires have an impressive amount of momentum and traction on the downhills. I set a PR on this loop today - when things are smooth this thing is noticeably faster than my Yeti
two days ago I was riding bundled up in snow flurries-
today Shorts and Sun! what a change
Went out and rode some sweet Pisgah ST for my birthday gift to myself. Hit Pilot Rock, a two mile hike, to Laurel Mountain, a 7 mile technical descent. It was a great ride. I am lucky to live in paradise.
I need to make it back out to Pisgah
Never been. How is it?
In one word; primal. Pisgah is about as technical as it gets... oh, there's trails out there but don't expect some nice, groomed, flowy berms to zone out on... no, you better bring your A game, and be good at rocky "features". It is serene, beautiful, and about as isolated as I have ever felt on this side of the Mississippi.
So not a real good place for the rigid SS or the rigid Superfly then, huh?
I'll have to wander down with the Top Fuel. At least it'll have 4" of travel.
One of these might be a better choice...
If Neko can do it, you can do it... just, maybe not quite as cleanly.
That guy skids his rear wheel way too much. Tears up the trails
Nope. Skidding tears up trails and gets riding areas shut down.
I've seen it
You can slow down faster if you don't skid that tire. He's doing it for the camera. ...which makes it worse cause now kids are going to see that and say 'hey! look how kewl that looks! I'll skid around the corners too!'
So I can't ride my dirt bike there?
