I've had a sneaking suspicion my bike times have been slower ever since I had a flat tire last year and replaced the flat 1.25 width tire with a slightly larger 1.5 city slicker.

This weekend I bought some 1.1/8 Gator Skins at Bushtukah and tried them out on my work commute for the first time.

Holy cow! What a difference. I posted my best time ever heading to work with a time of 28:35 and averaged 29.39 kph. I'm pretty sure I can hit 30 kph and get under 27 minutes on the ride home if the stoplights and wind don't slow me down . . .
