    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.

    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    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...
