    Yeah I think they fit like 26s. I have read reviews saying they're not great traction-wise in the wet, and I noticed the imperfect finish on the tread meant that it took about 50 miles before mine rolled as straight as I would've liked. I will probably use them as front only tires, as I think two is overkill (and that way they'll last longer).

    ...they just make sure your feet never dry

    Remember when Neo broke out of the Matrix and found himself in that pod full of goo? It's like that.

    That sounds horrible. I don't think I would trade wool for that. ... Or trade actual cycling shoes for beach accessories ;-)

    Wool (Defeet Woolie Boolies) has worked well for me so far (37F has been the coolest ride this year). I am not sure that I will be able to wear the sandals once it drops below 28F, though.

    And if they make your feet that funky, I think the waterproof socks will probably not work well for me. Even with the kayaking in an Adventure race.

    I think it's more of an issue with how long they stay on your feet. I'll have them off within an hour, and so am willing to accept moisture trapping for keeping actual rain out and gaining some extra warmth. Still haven't used them yet.

    New dynamo-powered tail light. Very pleased; should have gotten one years ago.

    It stays lit for several minutes after stopping, which is how I got this photo.

    And worry not, America. It's quite a bit brighter than this picture once he's rolling.
