  1. You're right, of course. And on a closer look the tread doesn't seem perfect for rain, with there being no water channels. This. Yes.
  2. I imagine a wider tyre will be helpful on wet tarmac. I have on occasion slipped in the rain with my InMotion when making a quick turn with too high of a lateral G. It would also make me more confident on gravel. I absolutely can't wait to see some hands-on (or feet-on?) tests of this wheel!
  3. Google Translate is calling it "safely called speed" (it keeps jumping around, because of the soft image quality, but all the variants I'm getting are starting with "safe..." something).
  4. För min del funkar vilken helg som helst (förutom midsommar) den närmaste månaden. Håller till i kanten av Nackareservatet, men kan absolut ta mig upp till Järva/Sollentuna om det passar er andra bättre.
  5. I would go with the New Zeeland mud snails, since they are parthenogenetic, and thus must be virgins. Otherwise you can never know for sure!
  6. Ah yes, I did quite alot of city exploring on my way home from work last summer and I expect I will do more of that this summer as well. It really struck me how little of the city I live in that I had actually seen before! Then I got my wheel.
  7. One such person is Ian at Speedy Feet:
  8. The limit for me is when the tyre seems to get really close to pinching as I go up curbs at some speed. That's the signal for me to put some more air in.
  9. Why, you seem to be right, there. I guess I'm just boring. Nice video @Henrik Olsen!
  10. 66 km/h is ludicrous! But being able to go maybe 40, knowing there's a chunk of margin in there would probably make me quite happy. I'm excited for you!

  12. You North Americans, such comic book geeks! Call me boring but I prefer the "plain" white. So nice and shiny! Oh, and @LanghamP, welcome to the club!
  13. Yes the thread felt sort of familiar, haha! There are some good looking options in that thread as well, but there's just something about the design of this Bell that calls out to me. Maybe I'll get it later in the year, when the cold starts to creep in. EDIT: Here is a page with some more pics: http://www.casualsnob.com/blog/2015/5/2/coolest-open-helmets-available-davida-91-bell-custom-500
  14. Yes, mine also has the V-shape. It's probably for stability, so you won't risk gliding off the pedals to the side. As @LanghamP says, pointing your feet outward will make it more comfortable. Also, I suggest wearing running shoes while riding. The size of the pedals will bother you less because of the upward curve of the sole.
  15. Nice! I never use this feature on my V5F+ because I don't think it's stable enough, and just leaning it against a wall works well enough.
