I have ben using 2.3 Kenda Kinetics non UST tires with Stans for over a year now with no problems. Come to think of it I have never run UST tires. I don't like the added weight.
Save weight by using non UST and a couple of scoops of Stans, and run any tire you want.
BTW, this even worked...
Ellsworth has a long record of screwing people over, and outright lying in his marketing. So your not gonna get a lot of love on this board about that asshat.
But I agree that the SC Nomad looks mighty interesting!
Me and my wife have been playing about once a week for the last few months. We are enjoying it, and are now looking at getting some good clubs ourselves. We both got our set from Goodwill, which is what I reccomend for someone wanting to see if they like it. $20 for a full set, including bag...
But is the high bottom bracket really bad?
My Uzzi SLX is supposed to have a really high BB, but I never notice unless I put a big fork on it. With my Firefly, it feels good. Shiver...not good. :eviltongu
There is a certain technique to shifting.
First, don't shift while under power. I back off a little when shifting. Second, pay attention to your gear combinations. You don't want to be in your big ring up front and your 34 tooth in the back. That will snap a chain pretty quickly.
