    Sorry to hear that, I rode with him at the Harpeth River ride in Franklin Tn. during the 4th 50+ ride. He was one of the most enthusiastic riders.

    It is, I have gotten in the habit of drinking a glass of V8 in the morning. I have no problems with cramps since then. I try to ride my age (63) once or twice a week.

    That sounds about right, I don't carry much more than 40 on my Hunq and I'm sure Sam could handle it with the right tires. The only reason I don't use Sam for touring is the simple fact that I have...

    I haven't measured them, but the tire is the same except for the fiber material in the belt which seems to be as durable and supple as before. I've gone through a few since they made the change and...

    +1 I agree, the Elk hide tape is thicker and more comfortable to use although the Brooks tape looks better. Both hold up for years and years once they are applied.
