    When I was riding clinchers, I tried Pro2s, GP4000s, Corsas and after riding on a set of Schwalbe Ultremos (I believe it was R1s, then DDs) I've stuck with Scwalbe since. Even after going tubulars for the last several years, Schwalbe were my go to tires. I find the tires to have a very supple ride, similar to the corsas but a much more durable tire that doesn't cut, tear or wear out as fast.

    Good to know, I'm not liking the helmet mirrors and cars keep getting more quiet.

    I really hope you're correct. After using Vittorias I switched to the GP4Ks and I don't like the dull ride. It just feels dead.

    I went with the Ultremos after finding them on sale @ PBK. My only hope is that the ride is similar to Vittorias but with a longer lifespan.

    What'ya think?
    Almost all of my gear is by twinsix, watch their specials in the fall, they markdown the leftover stock like crazy.

    Yeah it was chainlove but didn't actually get it when went up. One day I think someone screwed up and put it up for 15% less than what they should have but I missed out on it. I contacted backcountry via chat 2 hours later and the guy price matched the glitch price.

    I took it out yesterday after I put it together on a tiny trail behind my house but it wasn't enough to really test. I am taking it out this Saturday with a buddy who just got a new Marin Rift Zone 29er. I did realize though that I do not like clipless pedals one bit on this bike. Switching to Saint flats.

    Just got some Minoura Action Rollers however, one of the roller drums has something rattling around inside it so I'm not too pleased. Thinking that it may be a bearing.

    2014 - New ride

    This purchase required several negotiations with the sales person and more importantly, my better half. These pictures were taken at the LBS after the test ride. It wasn't a particularly good day for riding outdoors, but I still had a great time.

    I pick up the bike on Wednesday 3/5...sans the reflectors, cassette disk, and labels/stickers.

    Charge Scoop. After my no-name saddle died and I couldn't find the same one I tried several saddles. With 50 miles on it, this one is promising.
