So lovely. I feel like one of the luckiest people in the world when I get to take the long way home on the trails. Simple pleasures, man!
Riding the old RB-T is a great way to bring in the trail-commute season. There's this one hard switchback from the middle trail up to the top trail that I can only pull off on the RBT.
Very satisfying. So of course, that's the route I pick (instead of Glen's Waterfall) to get from the middle trail to the upper trail.
For the super attentive: it's not the same as this route, which is also a mid-to-upper route.
The RB-T is running 32 mm Pasalas at the moment, which rule, but I want a tiny bit more tread without giving up too much cush and speed on the road. So, in my never-ending quest for the perfect and appropriately ultra-expensive tire, I scored a set of the Challenge Grifo XS.
Yes. They're white. Of course.
