What I learned when I went to order some buttery red hetres from a lbs last
month, and this may be nothing new to you, but was new to me, was that the
color is being discontinued; gb will continue to make the black and cream,
as I understand.
Thanks to a list-member who had some of the used 650b reds, we did a trade,
and now I'm riding 'em. They went on the rims mercifully easily. And
thanks to another list-member who was doing a rash of recent tire-pressure
number-crunching, i've dialed in about a 35-40 psi, which has served me
well for cushy/fun commuting and weekend rides.
6 years into biking/Riv ownership, I'd never given much thought to tire
pressure, and had never been on tires this wide. Incidentally, I stripped
the racks and fenders/lights that I've had set up for the last 5 years when
I changed the tires, just to see how'd it feel.
I like the red heaters
and would love to track down some more--any thoughts on where to go? Why I
have to be partial to the red all of sudden--no idea. What can I
say--they've put some wind in my sails after not-biking much for at least a
year or two.
