BT-016 Front / Bt-021 Rear, couldn't tell much on suspension in the rain and wet roads, seemed a little stiffer though..

I rode to work in the cold and rain last night. Usually don't bother me. Then I hit a pothole and bent both rims. Looks like no Night Gnome Forest Ride for me this week.

The guys at work, "You rode in tonight? You're crazy man." I love the reactions I get.

It popped me up in the air when the rear hit. I was able to maintain control thank . It was a bad section of road and I was looking for a line through it and saw the pothole when it was too late. Really peeves me. Talking to the insurance co. on monday and see if they will file it against TXDOT of the contractor doing the work.
