…rain on me (when I’m on my cross bike)?
A few weeks ago I decided that I would sell the Harry Hall commuter. There is a long term plan to replace it before winter with a similar bike, but I decided that as I have a beautiful Indy Fab Cross Bike not getting used, I’d fit the pair of carefully chosen 23mm tyres that have been sitting in a box for about 9 months and ride it over the summer.
So earlier this week the Harry Hall was taken off the road and a big clean up of it started. The Cross Bike lost the knobbly rubber and a pair of Apple Green Schwalbe Stelvio tyres, that match the paintwork perfectly, were fitted. Of course since then it’s rained almost every day. New tyres and diesel slick roads don’t mix well so I still haven’t had a chance to push the bike and find out if they’re any good.
It has without doubt rained on every day I’ve ridden the cross bike so far. I beginning to wonder if there is more than a coincidental relationship…
