    A little post-century #baaw action. This bike is amazeballs.

    There's actually a very complicated algorithm that only makes sense in my head. But the basic approach starts with an assessment of whether I need a power meter for the day and what the weather looks like (rain and/or wind). Those two factors will steer me towards the first subgrouping. From there the real complexity kicks in based on recent usage, ride type and color coordination*. The real magic of the algorithm is that I do all this in seconds, usually at 4:45am when my brain isn't functioning, so it's a fully subconscious process. Either that or I just grab whichever one catches my fancy.

    *This is is a flat out lie. I'm regularly found on a bike that clashes with my kit and that of everyone around me.

    I would like to see this mapped out in a Visio diagram or other process chart (that might help at 4:45am).

    Do you swap wheels? Tires? Both?
    What types and combinations do you use?

    So far I have seen:
    - Compass tan wall
    - Compass black wall
    - Clement MSO

    hello NY

    ;)

    today I got the Clement and put them on for a short off road ride. they roll nice! but comfort compared to 44mm tires is average.

    I love the Compass tires, they roll great, very good!! before I used Barlow Pass, the ones above are Snoqualmie Pass, the light version is super fast, and super thin! ;()
    the tan side wall version a bit stronger, not much I have the feeling, their side walls are not the strongest.... after only 700km the side wall looks like I had done several 1000 with them,
    using them on stony off roads is a risk, several little scratches on front and rear tire, no cuts, but there is the feeling that it can happen any moment. I bought them thinking that they are
    (maybe) similar built like the Panaracer Paselas, with them I did heavy off road tours in Romania, Spain, Georgia many thousand kmīs, only one little side wall cut. so I guess they are not built the same way.

    A tire 42-44m rolling easy but a bit stronger side walls...... I need.

    ah, I also have a pair of Specialized Sawtooth, liked them, maybe not fast, but comfortable... Jan Heine ripped them off in his last issue ;) have to test them again, after reading his review.

    Thanks for the info on the tires. I need to fine something up to 32mm to fit in my mid-reach brake Seven. I have the Clement LLG in 32mm but have not yet tested them.

    As others have said, that bike and your pictures are truly inspirational.

    Not getting out as much as I would like on this - glad I option for rack so now I can take this to work and leave in secure lock-up and at least get some more miles.
