I’ve done this before. Your front tire gets shredded and all you have laying around is a red-backed Vittoria Randonneur. The difference is, I never took a second to document it. Nice one Walton! See more of the Walt’s world at his Tumblr.

    Long time lurker, first time commenter, love the new site. Just a question though : wouldn’t putting a used tyre on the front would make you lose adherence?

      Thanks for dropping a line dude. Honestly, if you did a ‘blind test’ – I doubt you’d tell a difference. Especially with a Randonneur and especially on a super chill commuter bike like this. It’s not a performance-minded road, or race machine ya know?

        Right, maybe I’ve been too influenced by tyres’ manufacturers reccommandation ;).

          I’ve learned that personal experience / learning > marketing

    New site is clean, but I feel disoriented every time I refresh the page. I don’t know how to sort what’s new, and sometimes even though I think I’ve read everything, I keep scrolling down and seeing posts I have never read.

      Thanks for the feedback. Basically, the left “Radar” is updating all the time. The center “Reportage” updates maybe once a day… I just wanted a way to keep the photosets, stories and galleries on the page at all time since on the last format, they got bumped off every day.

        Thanks for clearing that up, makes way more sense now.
