Thinking about going to the Dark Side1

Tim if Tuppie could talk, it would tell you that Dunlop 555s don't work very
well off road either. (: "I know nothing!"

thinking about the switching over off-season as well, but haven't done so yet,
so I can not speak from personal experience.

off-pavement, but I am sure lots will end up chiming in this thread. Haven't
had a good Dark-side post for, ... ah ... at least a couple of days, maybe even
a week. Starting to go in withdrawal.

which tire is everyone using. I need more traction in the gravel and dirt where
I like to go! Slipped the other day on some green moss while crossing a shallow
2 inch deep stream. I did go down but was able to pick up the bike on first try.
Adrenaline or Viagra don't know which helped! I think more rubber on the ground
would also help with braking.
