Again, GREAT ride report.. Hey, you figure "pegz" is gonna run a little more air in his tires next time? I count, what, THREE flats?

I'd try a few more pounds and live a little more on the skittish side, myself..

Thanks - each day was fun, 6 was really long.

Yeah - Burning Man, the primary reason there are so many locked gates and BLM Wilderness Study closures now IMHO. Oh well.

I saw bikes parked outside that place but we were trying to git'er done and finish up.

We all ran 20 - 25 lbs the whole time. Pegz just had some bad luck and an old back tire to begin with. I started out with a set of Maxxis Desert IT that were about 50% gone. Figured I'd burn'em up on the way out and slip on a fresh set once we were in the goods out there. Worked out well except for the pavement on the way back, still . . . nothing like new tires out there and nothing will survive an entire trip like this. Well, unless a guy were to just putt around I guess - which is impossible!
