Christmas Eve Ride

Riding the Dos Niner today. Conditions weren't good for a warp speed single track test, but severe conditions testing was primo.

The ground had about a quarter to a half an inch of wet slop on top of frozen ground. Can you say grease on a table top?

Here's a shot of what I mean. The tires would sink in until they gripped more solid ground. High speed leanin' wasn't in the cards for today. The Dos did pretty well in the sketchy handling department, though and it didn't clog up badly with mud either.

You can see what I mean here. The mud cleared really well from the Michelins, as well. I continue to be impressed by these tires.

A moment to reflect............................

May you have a joyous and peaceful Christmas holiday!
