- #Repost (@cyclosomatic): My first proper all-road ride on the new @reneherse Juniper Ridge 650b x 48mm tires was a complete success. For my first time on Gatineau Park trails this year, 60k of mostly dirt to Wakefield felt like the best way to crack the seal. The JRs truly do feel fine on pavement, and are totally in their element on the trails. I’m a big fan of their slightly ‘tall’, profile, which makes for a nice overall shape to the casing, and lots of protection from bottom-outs on rocks. Fast and stable, their tread blocks provide consistent grip without and hint of squirm. I think I’ll end up spending a lot of time on these this year! With 3/4 dudes on 650b, I think it’s fair to say this format is finally taking hold!Did you see the big interview with @iamtedking and the latest in his #GroadtoKanza series?
