    So, how does one crack a mahogany skinned door without realizing they have done so? The latest uni tenant's shenanigans. End of April can not come soon enough!

    I prefer Rubino Pros to Krylions, they seem to wear better and the Krylions just don't make me feel as confident.

    Going to be warm here today but it might be windy. Looking forward to a nice long day in the saddle.

    John - I've only heard good stuff about the Rubinos. The Krylions have been discontinued anyway, replaced by the Pro4 Endurance. I won't need tires for a while; I'll have to see which good ones are on sale when I do.

    Have a great ride!
    Regards,
    Chuck

    Demain, on roule!

    Unless I find a good deal on something else, I always buy Rubinos. Theyre high mileage tires for sure.

    I used Rubino Pros on my pit/training wheels last year. They were fine. Once the center of the tread flattens out they become flat prone. Once you get one flat, the next one comes pretty soon after. I would get 2K-3K miles up to that point. Can't argue with that.

    For reals, I'm usually happy with half of that.

    There's this young woman who rides with our club sometimes and she's pretty hot, so this one guy decided to hit on her and told everyone who would listen he was going to have her. Of course, she rejected him so now he talks smack about her and tries to drop her in the hills, (he can't).
    Today, she was pulling the group over some rolling hills and when we stopped he started giving her crap about leading. I told her not to feel bad about being strong.
    I think she's cool and we all like having her there and I hope this dude doesn't drive her away.

    I can't beat that, but I did have 2 squats before hitting the road at 6am this morning. So I got that going for me.

    I really like the new Endurance 4. I think they are even better than the old Krylions.

    I hate that kind of crap. He sounds really insecure or something. There was a guy on a group ride trying to chat up a girl and holding up traffic behind us. The rider was swearing at the car telling the car to go. Finally I told him the car was waiting for him because the driver was being considerate, unlike him. I might have used the word "jerk" in there to describe what the driver was not. I also might have pointed out that she wasn't interested in him anyway.

    I hope that you can tell her in a non-trying-to-pick-you-up-way that the other guys respect her strength, willingness to take the front, etc. I'm sure she doesn't need to hear it but it's always nice to hear good things about your riding.

    Since when has a group ride become the latest singles bar??

    Some of us do compliment her riding and she has made friends with the main hammer-princess in the group so maybe she'll stick around.
