    Did you get the Trance yet?

    It came in at the bike shop today but I'm heading to VT for the weekend so I'll be picking it up Monday. Hopefully the weather will be nice Tuesday and I'll be able to get out for a ride.

    I also ordered some new tires for it today since I've heard that the Hutchinson Bulldogs that come stock are terrible tires. I'll be getting the Kenda Nevegals, which are supposed to be pretty good on wet roots and rocks.
    Fear should be treated like fire - it's a good thing that can keep you warm but it can also burn down the house

    Short of studs, I'm not so sure anything is "good" on wet roots...

    I've found my Nokia Gazzolodis at low pressure (15-25psi) work pretty good, but they're heavy, so if you don't mind the weight.........

    Nothing is necessarily good on wet roots but there are tires that work better than others. I've heard good things about the Kenda Nevegals so I decided to give them a shot. I don't mind if the tire is a little heavy since I don't do any racing. It's always amazed me how people will complain about a few ounces extra on the frame and yet they could make it amazingly easier by losing 30 pounds of body fat.

    Quite true. I'd have to cut off a leg to lose 30 pounds. And that would make cycling decidedly more challenging.
