- Excited about the new Japanese book on one of the most fascinating derailleur makers; Huret. Available as a one-time order until April 29. More info on the blog (link in bio).#Repost (@gregozaurus): DUE NORTH - KIT LIST Our #compasstires helped us roll on the French backcountry roads. I was running a pair of Chinook Pass 700Cx28 Extralight (the actual size is more 30mm) and what surprises me the most is how low pressure you can ride these without losing efficiency. Definitely a key element of my setup since Ii’m running a stiff frame. After roughly 1600km, the front doesn’t show any sign of wear and the rear’s is barely noticeable. Only one flat during the whole trip on heavy gravel with a lot’s of sharp stones, so I would definitely recommend them if you can afford the cost. ___ #211 #211cycles #duenorth #compass #chinook #tires #cafeducycliste_style #cafeducycliste #bike #cycling #supple #supplelifeAnother beauty from @abovecategory: Our #compasstires are the perfect complement to @opencycle’s no-compromise spec. #repost
