    29er's have more tire float

    I did Ore to Shore this weekend. After the race I headed back to Three Lakes (Wisco) to the cabin my friend has. I unpacked the car, hopped on the bike and rode down the hill and off the pier. Then she went skiing. It was a great weekend.

    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    …and as you had probably already known, bikes such as the Surly Pugsley, 9:zero:7, Fatback, Gobi Sandman, and Tommiterrain Sea Destroyer all have the floatation department fully booked up:



    Clearly, the 26"x3.7-3.8" tires have even more “floatability” than a run-of-the-mill 29er.
    Uh oh! Someone just stole your KOM!

    Dang, those pics make me a bit homesick. Spent most of my summers at my parents cabin on Long Lake...I now live in Utah.

    Next time you're up there, if you have time, ride the Hidden Lakes trail, take some pics and post em..
