What was the temperature up top? I'm wondering how the road appears dry with all that snow around - unless it was below freezing (even "in the sun" apparently).

@HT2: The blacktop stores a lot of heat, which melts snow and evaporates water. It has most probably also been kept driveable during the winter.

Very nice, Makoy.

Looks like you've been enjoying your FM066 more than your Orca. Makes me wanna buy one if it is that gooood.



Mainly because its a new toy. Apart of that, I have nothing to complaint about the bike. Definitely more compliant than the Orca, seems fast and feels light too. Funny thing is the Chorus, I swear it feels like my SR. For the money spent this build is definitely a winner.

I would never have believed they were UK shots jekyllman - awesome weather you've got there.

Up on the Portalet it must have been 15C or so. No idea why the snow wasn't melting.

@ross: Do your GP4Season sing a lot (or more than other tyres) on regular macadam? Just wondering if the pair I recently retired was typical for the model.

I can't say I've noticed it, I'm running the 25c's. They feel slower on tarmac than my Veloflex, but the 4seasons are a good allrounder

Kjetil: Mine are a little sluggish, as if they feel slower.. But they are great tires. Running them on my CX/commuter at the moment.
