I just have 2.8" plus tires on mine, and it's super fun in the snow!

Down here in the desert it's fun to ride full rigid that doesn't beat you up, and they float across sandy washes with aplomb.

I have 2.8 x 27.5 on my mtb but it has 150mm out back and 160mm in the fork. I have not had it in snow yet.

Oh you got a full squish plus bike!

2.8 works great on packed MUPs and 4" or so of powder. I haven't tried them on corduroy trails but I imagine 4" tires would be better on them.

Yep. It's bigger and has more suspension than my first motorcycle.

All is clear now.

(Texans hate Oklahoma with a burning rage that is a faint shadow of the NY-Boston sentiment.)

Thereís plenty of that here too. The general lack of common courtesy toward other drivers or to cyclists amazes me lately.


Last week a driver and male cyclist, of a man and woman cycling duo, had an altercation. The altercation escalated to the piint that the driver exited his vehicle wielding a knife, and threatening the male cyclist. The woman drew her concealed cary and shot him dead.

They did in my school but I think they quit my Junior year.

I graduated in 1969 and girls were required to wear skirts/dresses in school and even as spectators at sporting events except football where slacks were allowed.

No AC for me til I got to middle school in AZ.

I have no idea how I survived school sans-AC in NC. May had to have hurt just a little.

We didn't know what AC was.

I have never felt one or noticed it, but Doc said, the notice maybe syncope, or sudden death. Not playing around with this, just gonna ride my bikes and enjoy the view. :)

edit, tomorrow is my crashiversery, how time flys by.

mines next Tuesday
