I spent most of this evening putting my new ‘fat boy‘ (which is not related to my physique honestly) slicks onto my mountain bike and swearing (due to the frustrations of changing the tyres!).
I took the bike for a quick 2 mile spin afterwards and could immediately feel the difference from the old ‘off road’ tyres that I was using – going uphill was a breeze compared to the old grunt and grind feeling when using the other tyres. Here’s a picture of a ‘fat boy’ slick tread (or not is the case!) …..
I’ll be giving them a proper run-out tomorrow hopefully with a jaunt down to Mumbles and back.
