this evening i put the new tires on the bike. i was pleased to find the stock tires have a kevlar bead rather than a wire bead(like the schwalbe tires). that means i won’t have to go out searching for another folding tire to take with me on the trip. i started thinking about taking a trailer today as well. it’s not that i need one, and i really think it would be more hassle than anything. i don’t know why it’s still in my head.
