Me, nooooo. I'd have to lay off doughnuts and beer for that. Not something I'm willing to do right now.
My tire's, yes.
Vik included a pair of Hutchinson 26" X 1" racing slicks when he sold me his Volae, and it was time to give them a try.
They certainly are quicker, and that is very important to me. Less comfortable? I suppose in theory they are, and I might actually notice it over several hours of riding, but really, with 1 1/2 tops at a time I don't really notice it. They are noticeably faster rolling though. There was a point during the commute today where I held 63 kph for over 3 minutes! That felt great. Okay, it's a very steep downhill, but it still felt great. On the Continental Sport Contacts that were on the wheels previously, I'd do about 55km on that stretch. Sure some of it might have been that I was feeling strong today, but the tires did make a difference. My average speed was up almost 5 kph for the trip. I think I like these tires.
A cool thing I found out is that my el cheapo bike stand works for my Volae also! I started working off the ground and remembered how miserable it was and why I bought a stand in the first place. Figured I might as well give it a try, and it worked. Sweet.
In even less exciting news, I found my tube inventory that I had packed from the move! Nice not to fear the flat again! Woot!
