Well its been raining a bit in so cal and the route I normally ride starts out in some loose dirt. The loose dirt turned into nasty clay that stuck to my tires and jammed in the fork crown and rear so that the bike wouldnt even roll...so I had to get off, roll it backwards to get all the packed up mud out and then go again until it packed up. This shenanigans went on about every 5ft so I gave up and walked to where the dirt changed to something rideable...is this the norm with wet soil riding? Should I drop a tire size? I am runing cont. velocity 2.3 front and rear.
the dirt that stayed packed on must have added about 5lbs to each wheel and killed me more then usual on the climbs....might have to find a new route until this dries out.
