    If these just need cleaning and adjustment and you can do yourself you will be in just a couple of bucks, way cheaper than replacing wheels and you will keep the original look too.

    I set this up so I can easily move it from bike to bile as well so if you do ride different bikes it can save some cash by only needing to have a single dyno for all bikes.

    I have done a 1000 mile tour on 700x25s and 30 pounds of gear. It gets the job done but you will have more flats. Not as comfy as 28s or 32s either. Why not get just one bigger tire and ride that....

    Hair does wick water away from the skin, giving the sweat more surface area for faster evaporation and more effective cooling. It also keeps some of the sweat from rolling off of the skin further...

    Thanks. I am wondering if I am misunderstanding what the label is supposed to mean. I cannot imagine there is a reason you cannot use them, but why the label then.
