Wow, quick shipping from Wiggle. Got them today and mounted up. They are HEFTY tires. 1.14kg. But so beefy. It is like going from passenger tires to all terrain truck tires. I feel like I can run over anything. test ride around the neighborhood and rolls better than expected. With the lugs, I thought they'd be louder, but surprisingly quiet. Can't wait to get them out on dirt.
I contacted Schwalbe USA and they said they're waiting on a shipment that's due to arrive 12/22, so maybe I can at least order them for Christmas!
I've been struggling to find 26x2.0 Mondials (Folding). If anyone knows anyone who might have four in stock, I'd appreciate the tip!
Great guys for all the help, it appears the Etrex is the one to get. Now what's the difference between Etrex 20 and 30 besides cost?
Then I noticed Garmin has two types of maps, Topo US 100k and Garmin Street Maps and Navigation called the City Navigator NT, which of the two is best for road touring? or can both be inside the unit and accessed separately?
A man cycling from the NE USA to Miami, FL went to stop at a McDonalds in Vero Beach, FL. An apparently paranoid schizophrenic homeless man just walked up and stabbed him to death.
I'm looking for a decent endurance or touring type drop bar bike. I want to do a tour. I also want my bike to be a good commuter and everyday rider. I have absolutely no intention of racing or much of anything involving speed. More interested in miles. I have myself somewhat locked into Tiagra at a minimum and 105 at best. Is this really necessary? I know the lower I go, the less crisp the shifting will be. A local dealer told me I wouldn't notice much difference between Sora and Tiagra, but that I would from Sora to 105. I thought Tiagra was essentially the same thing as 105, with 105 being a cleaner and prettier look. Would Sora or Claris suffice for a budget bike? How much more often will the budget Claris or Sora go out of adjustment as compared to Tiagra/105? THANKS
I'm beginning to think that the recommendation for washing out at the end of the day and air drying is probably the best solution. No more plastic bags loaded with unwashed clothes for me.
