Thanks for the info on the tires. I've been trying to decide on something a little more
aggressive - but I hate changing out new stuff.
However, if I have another experience like last weekend I may have to.
I got into some new gravel that accumulated on the inside of a curve,
Since all my cruiser riding was on the road, it was exciting for just a couple of seconds.
Lucky I kept it upright, I really think the light weight helped (compared to 750lbs of my last bike), & my MSF course added some confidence.
Our GSD's are Kali (about 90lb) deep voice and pretty intimidating, and Niki (only 60lb) and she's the race horse - my wife runs her on her mountain bike.
Thanks again for the info, I'll check them out.
