Specialized Flak Jacket

Did 22 again on the 4300 this a.m. without trying hard. It's getting easier.

The lbs has their Memorial Day Tent sale today and my Specialized Crossroads is sold as well as my mag trainer. Good deal.

I picked up a set of Flak Jacket 25 tires for my FX. I knew they would but I asked the guy at the store, the guy that knocks off 20% on everything I buy if they'd make a difference from my stock 32's. He said Ohhh Yeah; and I got some smaller tubes as well for them.

Upon inspection when I got home I noticed what seemed to be air bubbles in the sidewalls of the tires. I'll hold off putting them on tonight and bring them down tomorrow for them to look at.

Now off for another 20 miler I hope, lots of bikes out today and old cars
