Just thought I'd give an update. I threw my old 28s back on for a while and finally got around to trying 32s again. This time I picked up 700x32 Panaracer T-Servs. Good news - They ride great even on...

Although not a commuter, I should add that this is a bike that I bought (mostly) for aesthetic reasons. Even though I bought it because I like the look, I love how it rides and it gets a lot of trail...

It's certainly not practical for everyone, but this is what I did. I made a list of must have items:
- Steel to help tame the roads (maybe aesthetic reasons as well)
- Ability to fit 32mm tires to...

I've not used Chrome shoes before, so I'm just throwing this out there. I do like 5 10 Dirtbags. They are a similar style and have a great non-slip sole. Dirtbag...

Excellent! That Cannondale was my first real MTB! I put a Manitou 2 shock on it and rode it like crazy. I think my sister may still have it in her garage.

I'm about 170, so not too light, but I'll put the GP4000s on my radar while I decide what to do. For now, I've put my old tires back on, but they're getting close to needing replacement.

Good news! Since JensonUSA has a nice return policy, I'll be able to return them and start my search for another set of tires.

There's about 7 folks that commute semi-regularly in my office. 4 of us decided to do a Bike and Brew tour after work yesterday. We visited 4 breweries and 1 beer bar, with about 25 miles of riding...

I suspect that you're right and this is the culprit. I don't remember the width of my rim offhand, but I know that it is less than 20mm (I'll measure it when I get home later). I did check before...

The max pressure on the Gatorskins is 95. I ran the 28s at 80-85 with no issues. The reason I wanted to go with a wider tire was to run a lower pressure and smooth out the ride. I'll give it a shot,...

The beads certainly seem to be seated. I've actually had a couple of flats (old/bad rim tape, since fixed, not the tire's fault), so they have been reset a couple of times in front. I've run them as...

I put my bike back together last night after powder coating it OD green. Pretty happy how it turned out, so I decided to snap a couple of photos at my favorite spot on my commute home.
