New wheels on

New wheels front and back. TKCs, Woodie's finest wheels, tubeless. Can't wait to hit some dirt tomorrow. Stay tuned for report and photos.

Nice wheels Nimi! Just put on a set of Woody's as well, and love em. Great products and people there. What wheel size did you go with? I went 18x3.5 and 21x1.85. The rear is tubeless, but the front is still tubed, as I couldn't talk them into a tubeless 21. Have about 1,000 miles on them, and no complaints or regrets!

Miss you too! Even changed my title for you. It's been a busy summer riding and moving from Chicago to Dallas etc etc. I tend to spend more time here when the weather turns; it's been a gloriously hot summer in Dallas and Costa Rica.

More pix and ride report shortly.

Riding Impressions

Didn't get to the dirt, so quick road impressions (60 miles of highway and town). Love the lighter wheels and the sportbike-like turn of the smaller front wheel (17"). Impressed how solid the TKCs felt even with fast and aggressive (and warm) ride. Yes, it's a little louder, not as planted, but good.

Thanks for the advice everyone.
