    Rode hard on a pair of fatties today.

    Now that I have your attention;




    I put a set of 700x38 Vittoria Randonneur Hyper on my Mostorcross bike. These tires are light, smooth, fast and supple.

    I rode 42 miles of mostly crushed limestone plus a mix of chip-seal, pot-holed asphalt and broken concrete,

    It was bliss. Like floating on a cloud while keeping a solid road-bike pace. These tires will cover any firm and dry surface without slowing. Who needs a emaciated tire that can't keep going when the real adventure begins.

    I'll ride a fatty any-day.

    Ok, I'll start. Did they enjoy it more or did you?

    A great time was had by all. I took them places they had never seen before. It was a scenic ride along the crooked river.

    Are 700x38C tires really considered fat? My Maxxis Overdrives are that size, and they replaced my old Specialized Nimbus 41C tires...
