Finally hit the trail yesterday with a couple of friends and it was brutal, as in the weather, not the riding. Although my legs felt heavy going up that damn trail (Mount Falcon), its never been one of my favorites. The new Continental Trail Kings I put on the bike worked well, almost too well as they stuck to everything but are a bit heavy. A couple more rides will allow me to decide whether they stay or go. I definitely don’t like the weight but it could also be my slow fatass that is holding me back.
