Schwalbe Marathon XR

I forgot to mention the Marathon XR tires in the previous post. I bought them for my upcoming trip with a fourth or third on gravel roads. Nice tire. Very comfortable ride but more sticky on pavement than my usual Specialized Nimbus. On my commute ride, the side threads feel funny when cornering.

Montreal > Quebec in a single day is a roadie's challenge. In my quest to break slownesness records, I'll be riding from Quebec City to Montreal in 17 days. From september 21st to october 7th, I'll join the two cities via the Laurentian hills. I call it the "Fall Color Tour". Three more nights at work and I'm off! Woohoo!
