    Tyres; It's The Size_TiTs Night ride Green Mtn style!!!

    It's the size that matters! (thats what she said)

    When getting bigger than 3.0" tread pattern/shape seams to play a smaller roll when there is SO much contact Speaking of the Knard specifically. It's rockin'

    I've reconstructed my schedule so that I'll be able to attend TiTs rides on the regular now.

    So, how about 6:00 at IW for some pregame tasters and then some loop-d-loops on Green Mountain!!

    Cannot wait to ride bikes!!!

    I feel so inadequate with my 2.4 inch tyres. At least I have 150 mm of suspension to compensate. Been off the bike for far too long, I will endeavor to be there.
    The older I get, the faster I was.





    Punch it, Chewie.

    My bicycle also has tires on it. Some of them have sidewalls I'm confident won't fail shortly. I'm lookin' at you, Spesh, get your act together!

    In for this, In for NAHBS Friday (I think) and in for Sunday belated birthday shenanigans.
    The correct number of bikes one should own is N+1, where N is the number of bikes currently owned.

    Super smooth. Just needed a single wrap of gorilla tape to take up the slop. Then the 24" split tube and she aired up with a floor pump.

    Say goodbye to pinch flats!

    Snow?
    Maybe?

    Tire size choice will depend on levels of frozen precipitation.

    He may be old, but at least he's slow at riding his bicycle.

    That blower pow, really levels the playing field!
    It's been a long, long time since I've heard grown men hoot, holler, scream, giggle and all around laugh at the conditions and slog that ensued.

    Dudes, thanks for making that the most memorable TiTs ride of 2013 so far!!!

    Good times for sure! And somehow that Bad Andy dude (who's seven feet tall and shoots lighting bolts from his arse) walked away from the table without paying for my beer or grub. Fugger!

    Pics later as my cpu tethered to my phone is not playing well with IT connections. I need slow to build me a Booster.
