Without a compressor, that's not true for me.

Maybe Iím just lucky, but Iíve never had a problem getting GP 5000 to seat with anything but my crappy Blackburn pump both on the stock R3 wheels and my Industry 9 wheels.

Hmm... I could do that with Hutchinsons but not the GP5Ks. And with a good Spesh floor pump.

Ah well, happy with my Michelins for now.

Supposed to drop into the 90s this week and maybe even the high 80s by Wednesday.

I rode Saturday with a group and we got done before noon but it was still hot. We split into smaller groups as longer, hillier options appeared. Two of the women hung in there and did all the climbs without complaining, even a short dirt section, too. I look forward to riding with them again.

Today I rode alone and did some local climbs including a 14% section and I felt pretty good, considering my neighbors have had parties 2 nights in a row and I haven't had much sleep. Maybe that's the key, get so sleep deprived that I don't notice heat or discomfort.

Could it be due to thier being 23 mm tires?
I put the Michelins on no problem, no flats I just didn't care for the dead ride they gave.
I also tried a wire bead ultra deport I have due to an ordering error. Also No bueno. Can't remember when I've been this frustrated.
Also had a flat on my recovery ride this morning. Had to use my only surviving backup tube to get back to the car.

You're probably not using Pedro's levers. And a bead jack.

I don't know, I was never a fan of Yes (mostly didn't like Anderson's voice) and no amount of analysis can change that. When their songs would come on at work my response was "No Yes".

My seasonal Cat2 neighbor came to town. He's always got a fun vehicle, but this one is capturing the spirit of the moment for me -

A Winnebago'd 4wd Sprinter. He showed me around a bit - stove, bathroom with shower, motorized bed that raises/lowers, solar panels on the roof, etc etc. Being a bike nut, he also has a rack on the back.

I'll just have to settle for this.

I just looked at the price of the equivalent available here. I probably couldn't afford one even it I sold my house. :twitchy: :eek:
