    Challenge Gravel Grinder tires



    Really excited to try these. Still recovering from last week's crash (not pretty), so it'll be another couple of days before I can start riding again.

    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.

    Actual weight is 382g (408 claimed), 120tpi casing. I'll ask Challenge how far the breaker extends.

    Slower than I'd like, but it is what it is. Once the weather improves (snow yesterday and this morning), I'll resume riding to work.
