2 months later? grim. 27 miles w Wifey on Monday, Labor Day, Concord to Arlington via Reformatory Branch Trail & Minuteman Commuter Bikeway. she stepped off in Lexington so I did the Lexington to Arlington leg alone. gorgeous day temps in the low 80s maybe. rode the Trek FX 7.0 Alpha w the 40mm Proteks at 45 lbs. they were great on both the dirt & paved sections. finally christened the Lake Cycling 2015 Mens MX100 Mountain Bike Shoes BlackGrey size 48 & a Helmet from Sears. not sure why I liked this one, maybe cause it fit so well & surrounds my head more than my Giro which kinda just sits on the top of my head. could just be an illusion. the shoes fit great, glad to break them in on a short ride. the Proteks are turning out to be good trail tires. had to bomb past some road blocks on the MM over grass & dirt & they were sure footed. seems to be good thru some mud patches and softer sand sections near the farm coming from Concord on the Reformatory Branch
