    Hitting the Dirt

    I park my truck in a state park and commute my 10 miles to work. I have the option of going all black top or I can blast down a 1.5 mile dirt road. There are miles of mountain bike trails as well and I have yet to explore them. How many of you run the dirt? This is 1 of the reasons I use wax based oil to keep the grit out of my junk

    Not often, one of many rasons I stopped using MTB`s, but for sure I go on dirtroads and sometimes trails with no problems. at present I run 622x32 and 622x47 onmy big wheeled bikes, and bot are ok for trails.
