    Usually 48x16. Sometimes 48x15 on the lighter bike. Currently 48x17 on the steel frame because I'm still nowhere near full strength.

    You just missed me heading downriver. I always look up as I pass under the bridge to see if I can spot anyone I know.

    Tread is sometimes more important that tire width. I've found that, in wet conditions, tires with any kind of knobby tread are far less sticky than road tires. I've lost the front end in wet...

    Got me another enthusiastic low five from Dickie this morning.
    On an unrelated note that really only matters to me, I approve of this morning's kit.

    Saw dasgeh and her very distinctive lid this afternoon. Should have low-fived, but wasn't totally dialed in yet.
    She looked very happy to be out riding.
    I get that!
