Hackettstown Bike Ride is tonight, 6:30 from the Gazebo on Main & Moore. Gonna be fun! Last ride was a rambunctious 6-7 miles, quick clip all around town, hit up some nice dirt trails too. Bring lights and rain slicker tonight! Check out: Neither Rain Nor Gloom of Night
Jinx! So after yesterdays post, on my way home I gotta flat, rear tire of course. It was a pinch flat after a big bumpy section of road. I had some Continental Gatorskin 700×28 tires at home waiting. Mounted, they seem maybe 26mm or so, hopefully they’ll plump up more. I look forward to comparing these fairly expensive tires with the $14 Michelin Dynamics I was using. The dynamics are pretty nice, cushy, fast feeling, the 25c seems to be about 28mm, nice & tubby but I’ve gotten quite a few pinch flats and only maybe 1,500 miles from a rear tire before its squared off. Before that I was using Panaracer Paselas at around $15, the 28c seems right on 28mm, much more miles from them, maybe 3k, ride nice, they’ve gotten a few sidewall slices though from rough stuff gravel roads.
Will report back.
