@sarapgh2 – you can minimize your washington blvd experience by heading down negley run out of east liberty. this is also a fast road, but you’ll be going fast too, and it usually has minimal automobile traffic. also, once you get to washington blvd, there will be a LOT of other cyclists about, and you can probably hop in with a group.
Agreed! I talked to Glenn about this the other night when I picked up my bike at BB and he assured me the best bet is to just let some air out on Canton, etc. They’ll have two vehicles and can re-pump as needed after those hills.
underinflation is awesome. i found out the other day i was around 30-45 pounds under on each tire for pretty much the whole year. only flat i got was from a janky tire that had the wire beading piercing the tube.
@sarahpgh, its worth about the same as wife advice, its just that our gender doesn’t continually state said advice over and over and over again.
@stefb with your weight and 23 mm tires (I assume you are going to use those) even 85 are OK. I am going around 95-100 front and 105-110 rear and I weight 255. So far I didn’t have snake bites. Moreover on my Hutchinson I rode around 1700 miles and puncture at all.
