    Key Biscayne bike lanes are tennis court green, which actually makes a lot of sense.

    That's the Oak Creek Canyon overlook halfway between Sedona and Flagstaff.

    So three rides in on the Nano 40s and they are surprisingly versatile but great at nothing. For their size and even at lower pressures, they roll well on pavement but of course nothing like a true road tire. They also do pretty well on dirt, gravel, or light singletrack. That said, if you hit a rock garden, especially a wet one, the same design that makes them roll well on the road makes them a sketchy. On all three rides, I've managed to break the rear end loose pretty easily. Haven't had them long enough to comment on durability..

    Not a road tire and not a MTB tire but pretty at good pretending to be both.

    I think you guys are spot on. Most of the road/gravel grinder tires work well on the pave, great on gravel , and get sketchy when the going gets tough. But then the mtb/cross treads do great on the sketchy stuff, good on the gravel, and pretty much stink up the road. So I guess you have to choose two. Well done Lobsta with the red bar tape.

    drop psi a bit when the going gets sketchy, pump it up for the road. #framepump life.

    Yep, with any of these bikes, when it comes to tires it's all about compromise. No tire will work really well on pavement and railing singletrack. You gotta figure out what kind of riding you're really doing (almost all dirt? 50/50? Mostly pavement?) and then pick a tire based on that.

    Nathan is that a normal round chainring designed for 1x? The only chainring I could find to fit DuraAce cranks was an oval AbsoluteBlack one and I really don't like the ovalness.

    Great looking bike!

    Yes it is a Wolftooth narrow/wide chainring for Shimano. So far it's performed really well.
