It was great fun riding with you guys. Thanks for hosting us Phoenicians.
I set the bead and then the pressure on Friday night and it was showing 14 rear and 18 front. I knew I was bouncing around a lot but when John handed me his pressure gauge in Oracle and it showed 40lbs I felt a bit better. Even though I was hurting all over it wasn't just an off day that I was going to call it.
We bought a new pressure gauge on our way home. I still had a great time and also like that ride a lot. Definitely no pinch flats.
