    kenda kampaigns are skidtastic

    so after monstertrack weekend, i desperately needed to get a new set of cheap tires on the quick. i picked up a set of kenda kampaign wire beads at beacon st. bike. as far as i can tell, they're discontinued, but they are a lot of fun. while i don't want to blow through them too quickly, as i'm still broke - i find it hard not to skid all the time since it slides across the pavement a lot easier than my previous tires. while less traction may ultimately prove to be a bad thing, these are an unexpectedly fun tire.

    And if you want a tire that will slip all over the place, I recomend underinflating the conti ultra 2000s while its raining.

    I am riding one of these right now and actually like it quite a bit. We'll see how long it lasts

    What about IRC Duro Roadwinners?
    I just bought a set of 700x28s because they were cheap as cheap.
    Must have been OEM cast-offs or something.

    yeah, i'm of the firm opinion that these things were discontinued and sent to live in the attic, because they're so bad. however, they'd be a great tire to learn how to skid using either foot, although i'm fine with that as is. i'll do my best to keep them inflated up near 110.

    i'm not sure if these baddies will break in, but today the damp pavement made for some crazy skids. these things have patented krap traktion.

    when i upgrade, it will probably be to one of the rubinos.
