No lah! Sometimes 'unexplained' weight loss can be attributed to hyperthyroidism. It also can manifest as irritability, tremors, plapitations, hot flushes, sweats etc. Some brain markers will be the serotonins and endorphins which regulate moods, psychi and metabolism, amongst other things.

But then again, its about the tyres....

Get the cheapest 'commuting' or 'sport' model tires you can find from a reputable brand. Save your sweet race tires for racing.

I've a pair of all-weather Contis that have got 9000+km in them from just training rides. I think they will last another 1000km.

Been using Continental Gatorskins since March until now. No flats while riding, virtually bombproof. Now I know why they're called Gatorskins. Tough as an alligator's hide. Highly recommended for commuting, training, or everyday riding.

Yah lah, go use the Maxxis Detonator wire bead 28x700c roadbike tyres.  Really cool for touring and riding around. 

I noticed that as the tyre profile gets smaller eg 20 the chances for punctures increase.  28 is like very hard to catch on any sharp objects.  Just opinions from my personal stats on using tyres in a year. 

I got :

4 torn 20c tyres quite new (used between 2weeks to 2months),

4 blown 21mm tubulars; although I patched one after 500km use (avg life 1500km),

4 wornout 23c tyres that suffered 12 punctures. 

Also a 25c tyre I use on the rear to help cushion my butt, when the back gets sore.

The 28c Detonators are still thick and strong, inflated to 120psi, no punctures yet. 

Hey bikeshop guys, can you give me more discounts on the tyres?  $400 to $500 on tyres in a year?

 


Shake your ĐĐĐĐ maker and post it on Youtube. Msg me your phone number, don't call me, I'll call you. Yeah, your cheque is in the mail, you'll get it if the post office isn't on strike.
