So, after reading tons and getting a lot of great advice from some of you, I bought my Kona JTS and started commuting.
I friggen love it.
I go so fast and I feel like I'm getting so much stronger and healthier. Plus I'm way more energized at work during the day. Awesome!
So I had a few questions...
1) My JTS came with nubbly tires and I can feel that they're resisting a bit when I'm going fast on the road. I think maybe less nubbly, more slick tires would create less resistance. I was wondering what a good tire is? I don't want it to be too skinny because some of the roads I have to take are BAD with lots of holes and cracks, and not totally slick because I have ride on some dirt roads. Is there a middle ground? And what are good brands?
2) It's my birthday coming up in a little over a month, and I want to use this oportunity to ask for bike stuff! So, what should I ask for? What would you ask for if it was your bday and all you had was a bike, a helmet, a pair of bike shorts, a trip computer and a water bottle?
