    :thumb: One of my fast bikes is running 20s, plenty comfortable for this big guy. For a road bike, 25s seem to be a sweet spot, anything bigger feels sluggish. On a 26" rim I like fat tire but I'm...

    I posted years ago how much I disliked Marathon Supremes, I dumped the 700cs on eBay, kept the 26s on a weekend Farmers Market bike. My first complaint is the 700s were flat magnets for goatheads,...

    This is one of those dilemmas. As a runner, the rule is run (or walk) against traffic on the road. On a MUP you are obligated to run (or walk) to the right. It feels wrong, I much prefer to see...
