Speaking Of Fat

There was a big fat box that arrived at the B-43 Worldwide Headquarters yesterday.

And inside that box I found a big fat shiny new tire for my single speed.

The Maxxis Ardent will be really nice when I put my rigid fork back on, but I don’t have time to do all that shit right now. 

I got some other tires to user for super fast racing action.

Although I’ve never been able to run two different types of tires on the same bike (due to my OCD), I’m gonna give it a shot.  I picked the Ikon and the Crossmark (to be installed front and rear respectively), because they should make me go fast with much less resistance, and hopefully I can corner pretty well with them.  I’m not sure if I’ll get a chance to test ride the new setup before Sunday’s big race (to be covered tomorrow), so I guess I’ll find out the hard way weather I like them or not. 

At least they look good.

Since this post has become a Maxxis love fest, I guess I can show you something else the fine folks down in Georgia sent me…

I know, yesterday I told you to get off your ass, but it’s okay to sit down sometimes (as long as you're active most of the time.)  This will make to good chair to plant my ass in after endurance races, and it will make a fine seat to use when I hang out it my yard yelling at kids while I drink a few beers.

I can sit on my ass whenever I want.  I earn it first.

See y’all tomorrow.

I think you'll like the Ikon/Crossmark setup. I was running it for about 1.5 years. I still have an Ikon upfront but I am running an Ignitor on the back. Thats nice too.
