New Wheels

Back in December I began shopping for new wheels for my CoMotion Americano. I’ve never had spare wheels and really wanted the luxury of being able to switch between wheels and tires on a moment’s notice depending on the weather or type of ride.

This morning I took my first ride on my new wheel set, with a pair of Grand Bois tires mounted. What an amazing transformation the lighter wheels and more supple tires brought to the bike. Now I understand the value of a supple tire over the puncture resistant bricks I’ve been riding for the past decade. And the new tires completely change the look of the bike.
