Y'all ain't gonna believe what I just scored at work that were obsoleted:



I got two of the 2Gal/10L and 4 of the 8L Nalgene containers with handles!

FARRREEEEEEEBIEEEEEESS.....

I think only Rotopax makes a better container. It's Nalgene, very heavy wall, and the 8L one is nice and flat with the carrying handle. Time for a little Industrial Strength Velcro!

Did it bend the dog too?
Oh it bent the dog pretty good too, considering it went after my bike mouth first. I was 5 miles from home and pretty dang tired after 350 miles in the saddle that day, not to mention pissed at the dog's owner for letting it compromise my safety on a public road. I rode straight home after the brake lever/dog incursion. However, there is a replacement dog at the same residence and it has chased me on the bicycle.

Maybe carry a paintball gun and ride by a few times... the owner may take a hint when his dog is splattered with pink.



I really hate dogs that chase.

Pepper spray will make them think on the second opportunity of chase. If they chase again and you spray them, that usually stops them from ever doing it again. I've never had to spray a dog on the third trip by a house.

My pepper spray leaves an orange stain. I'm guessing the owner figures it out.

Even better idea and a lot easier to use than a paint ball gun. Thanks for the tip.

my experience with the k3:

10 miles


40 miles


80 miles


180 miles


i removed the tire at just shy of 400 miles, because i was putting a couple hundred mile dirt ride on, and i felt it was would be burnt up mid ride. they stick very well though, even when worn.

Plenty, 2-up even. Been through Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona on mine. About to turn over 3k on them with about 50% tread left.

Maybe you got a bad batch

Am I dumb for thinking about attempting to install my Karoo 3's at home this weekend? I kinda wanted to just to see how they'd feel if I needed to service them in the field, but I'm not sure. It's mostly the balancing part I don't know that I could do myself.

Attempt a tube swap which is what you'd be doing in the field in your garage but leave the tire changing and balancing to the shop. I take the wheel off and get charged $30 per wheel for mount and balance. It just doesnt make sense to buy all these tools if you're not doing it on a regular basis for yourself and other riders
