It's both. They call one of their flat protection layers Armadillo. But there is also a line of tires that they call Armadillos. The funniest part of that to me is that some of the tires in the...

It looks like he only tested fatter types of tires. Armadillo & Espoir only go up to 32.

No Specialized tires were tested?

I think Armadillo & Espoir would both fall under "tougher tires."

Oh please. That's quite the gross generalization. There are only two, maybe three pro-helmet participants in this thread that resort to the "gene pool" hyperbole.

Most of us don't care whether you...

How is this still bouncing around in A&S?

I told y'all I had stuff that needs to be dropped off in the Helmet Thread. I thought for sure, you'd have it there waiting for me.

Uniformity in traffic laws is what allows us to move thousands of vehicles around a city in any sort of reasonable fashion.

For example, if you are going through an intersection with a green...

I got a 2010 Jamis Aurora Elite in 2013. I'm not a fan of bar-end shifters, so I ordered...

I don't have many, but in my confrontational interactions with motorists, I maintain a calm demeanor and say, "Please learn the law and then go **** yourself."

It's the best kickstand I've owned. More stable than the Pletscher double.
