Did you ever know of a guy named Jeremy Catrelle? Say "hi" for me when you see him.
First off you have no idea of my riding abilities. Second death comes to us all so live life at its fullest. That being said when it's your turn it's your turn no way around it that's the way I see it...

That's it, just be completely dismissive of the risks involved in this activity, and run blindly into disaster.



I'm going to take a wild guess and say that you're either 23, not college educated, or both.

I'm going to concede on this. I agree with you all. Experience means very little compared to a flawless bike set up.

Yeah another person that talks out there ...first off i'm 34 and second I bet I have way more education then you do...Look up Mustang Engineering and maybe you'll understand where I'm coming from...
I didn't get on here to start a contest I simply wanted to get info. on tires. What i put on my bike with "my money" is my problem untill then if you don't have any advice then move the F around.

lmao! True that...I am a designer an electrical one to be exact. I'm two years from getting an engineering degree but what for when I make more money as a designer getting paid by the hour and not salary. The only position I would change to would be piping and that would be design as well...
