Good deal! I'm glad the ride worked out well this morning.

As for coasting, hmm... look into the wheel bearings. Even with knobbies, a bike should coast some. Fatboys (the slicks) were an experiment I tried for commuting, but they picked up so many glass flakes that any speed advantage was outweighed by the increased number of flats. That may have been unique to my commute, whose route always had lots of broken glass. Tires with some tread (I used Specialized Nimbus) seemed to eject the glass that the Fatboys held onto.
