My 2 cents (hey, you get what you pay for!)

Been riding a looooong time, many miles, many conditions, day and night, deer infested roads, high-density traffic areas at rush hour, no brand preference - it's a bike, just ride it damn it!

Cool2 Re: Hill Climb

I've ridden similar terrain on Tourances aired down to 20-25 psi, which makes it more manageable. I get comfortable fairly quickly in dry, rocky terrain. Loose, deep gravel takes a few more miles. ...
