Cardiologist said 39-40 resting heart rate was fine just a result of great conditioning. The BP meds I'm on don't decrease heart rate just open up the arteries.

Tubeless in the land of real goatheads, mesquite, octillo and broken beer bottles. The only thing that seems to flat tubeless is tire cuts that require a boot and a tube to get home.
