15psi! That's twice as much you need. Feels like a space hopper at those pressures.



Aaaaaand we're off! :lol:


You started it ;)

Anyway, unless its really snowy I'm bringing the STS.
That's if I don't break myself snowboarding the week before.

Grisley are mtb's designed by Peter Grisley, an american, for a Spanish bicycle manufacturer who wanted to get in on the mtb market and reasoned that having an american designer would give them some Kudos.
They also did a nice line in bonded carbon tubed frames.

Yeah V - bring that along, looks great! I'll decide closer to the time but it won't be a fatbike (don't have one), it won't be a GT (don't have one) and it won't be a spesh (er... don't have one). It will be retro though, I'll commit to that much!
