    I found a muddy ravine that just had a horse or two down it. Hoof prints are a mother to ride down. Luckily it was thick mud. Mostly slid down, stayed clipped with my road shoes and pedals... sketchy!

    Amazing bikes.

    but there is something about those ultra deep carbon wheels that rubs me the wrong way.

    I recognize the I75 Landbridge from hiking on the Florida Trail but was wondering what the bike trails were like in the area.

    I know Santos is popular but how about West of Santos on the Greenway?

    mmm... Donuts! What's the weight on those wheels? Have you tried them out in the mud yet?
    Pass the Dutchie on the non-drive side.
    Rather a 100$ bike with 1000$ wheels than a 1000$ bike with 100$ wheels.

    I love those Super X bikes...it's a shame they don't come in any rad color schemes. I want a bright red one.

    Yeah, they also need to run the gear cables along the top tube and give us a little more mud clearence on the rear end...

    Ghost I think I would slow you down! LOL but since I have a fellow 604 here may I ask a question..
    I do plan of commuting to work but would still like to take the occasional off road paths if I feel.
    Could you suggest tire type/ size that will make my trip more speedy but still confident to go off road if I want to? Also keeping in mind our type of weather ( rain )
    thank!

    I don't always ride fast, I often ride slower when riding with a group. I save hard riding on my solo missions. If you're planning to do the downtown crawl PM me.
    We can chat bikes anytime.

    I'm a partial(former fulltime) commuter, so I have a good idea of our roads.

    I ride with Continental Gatorskins in 700x28C.
    So far so good, I use Specialized Armadillos in 700x23C, 700x28C, & they're good commuting tires.
    I'm comfortable in Trout Lake, & Central park with these tires.

    If I'm riding strictly gravel/dirt/sand/mud I throw on my Maxxis Locusts 700x31C.(CX tires) I've done light snow in these bad boys too.
    Downside not good puncture protection, & soft compound/sidewalls.
    The tread wear is not great on these guys, I only pull them out when I need to.

    Honestly though, that is the bike bike I really wanted, albeit with disc brakes. Just couldn't up the dough. Congrats. The citron is pretty. It must own those BK streets.
