Thanks! Ah, yes, immediately. The flip side is that we have the lease on the current place for a few more months, which means we can take our time and only use movers for the big stuff, but I think we'll want to get to sleeping there ASAP. That shower is amazing. And I'm going to splurge on an MP1 once we're there. Set up a stunning pain cave.

Just like me.

Beautiful from a distance.

1) Which tires are currently favored?
2) Which sealant? Still OrangeSeal?
3) What should I use to inject the sealant?
4) Anything else I should bring along on the rides?

Any questions for the tubeless faithless?? :innocent:

There are so many things I want to say here that I think are slightly too far for this forum.

I saw those buuuuut given the ones that hurt my soles now are TX212s, it's hard to convince myself to try another. Especially given how terrible their distribution is.

What I really want is Giro Empire SLX, but sized for human feet.

Meh, so you risk a week off, some people see it as a badge of honor to get banned at least once.

Why not pre-hydrate instead?

About 9 years.

I was JRA through my little neighborhood, and this beauty was just about to roll off the trailer.

Quiet night.

Time for yet another solo midweek ride. Early start for me to avoid the predicted rain.

Trsnrtr 05-06-20 05:45 AM

We had another total rain-out yesterday. Hope to get out later. :thumb:

Good Morning!

Purty.

I need a good dry lube- Iíve been using finish line but donít love it. Any recommendations? Seems like thereís no general review consensus in the interwebs.

And a slow morning to follow. I am beginning to be really frustrated in my inability to ride. Though the lockdown would prevent anything other than around the neighborhood. I could ride the hybrid around the property. If I could ride.

You're never going to earn big endorsement money with that attitude.
