  • Hmmm... almost missed a turn yesterday.

    Hey guys...

    After putting two new sneakers on the TLR(Michelin Pilot Sports 120/190), I almost turned in too far on my first moderate turn and nearly ran the bike off the inside of the turn. It turned in really quick. I wasn't really pushing hard at all because I need to scrub them in before I start doing anything aggressively. It just caught me by surprise.

    Man... what a difference on this bike from going from worn out tires with a flatter middle(from all the highway commuting I do), to a nice rounded profile tire. I'm looking forward to riding more today and scrubbing a little more of the chicken strips off.

    Ride safe

      That happened to me when I rode my friend's R1. It feels like a very fast bicycle compared to my TLS
