Groundhog Day of SoMo Circle Route – 03Jan2014

I’ve seen this movie before – out in the middle of nowhere and I hear a “POP” followed by a “HISSSSSSSSSSSS” followed by a few @#!!$%&@#*! This is the third time I’ve been stranded with a flat-tire on my new bike in less than 3 months!!!

Pushed the bike back from near the intersection of Central Avenue and San Juan Lookout Road to Los Dos Molinos (check out :next: http://losdosmolinosphoenix.com/ ) waiting for my daughter Tobyn to pick me up in her F-150. Once rescued by Tobyn, we dropped my bike off at Ahwatukee Global Bikes (check out :next: http://globalbikes.info/ ) and discussed the situation with Mark and Tristan.

I’ve been mountain biking since the mid-80’s with my original bike a Rocky Mountain hard-tail. My second bike was a full suspension Fuji I purchased upon arrival in Arizona in 2003. I can only recall being stranded on the trail once with an unrepairable flat (for me, trail repair means only adding some air to a gel filled multi-walled tube) after approaching 30 years of riding. Given the 3 strikes on my Specialized Stumpjumper Comp Carbon 29er, despite migrating to gel filled multi-walled tubes, I needed something much more rugged and reliable.

Time to try a tubeless set-up (Specialized Fast Trak Control 29x2.0 2Bliss Ready) :next: http://www.specialized.com/us/en/ftb/mt ... l#features

At $100 per tire installed, let’s see if they’re worth the $$$ - stay tuned for ongoing reports… :wrt:
