Re: Mid Atlantic Backcountry Discovery Route - Trip 1

Phil, or anyone: If you wanted to trailer to my house in Berkeley Springs and unload there to ride south, I've got plenty of parking. It's a quick hop to get on 81 from my house for a sprint down the slap in under 5 hours, or it's easy enough to pick up 220 through the GW and Jefferson National For...

Nice Janis!

Once you stalled, it was then very easy to see how steep the hill was!

Re: Mid Atlantic Backcountry Discovery Route - Trip 1

Tire choices are difficult for the Wee. Originally, I wanted to try a TKC80 front and Mitas E-07 rear, but I think I might go for the Anakee Wild tires front and rear instead. I like wet asphalt performance and most of the options that fit the Wee's front are not good performers on wet asphalt. The...

Re: Mid Atlantic Backcountry Discovery Route

I've learned that GoPro and other helmet type cameras can be slightly deceptive. They make stuff look easier than it is. That being said, I'm relatively confident that I could ride my Wee on those tough sections with decent tires as long as I picked good lines. The rocks sticking out would give the...

Hey guys,

I just ordered my tires D606 from Revzilla. They're having a sale for presidents weekend and ships for free. I got the D606's for 35% off. :)
I've never actually had a D606 as a front tire, but its a solid tire for a BRP. Glad you are getting your bike well set up.
