Deathwing Garage crash

Recommended Posts

sitting still on bike, running, sitting still and reaching down to pick up my wee buddy (dog) bike slipped on smooth cement in my shop and fell. Left a rear wheel skid mark.  Maybe these tires will be gone sooner than I thought.

Was te tire cold or warmed up? Cold tired in slippery cement regardless of brand or style will almost always give way

First time the bike went out from underneath me on a trail, and it wasn't my fault, the Deathwings went bye bye. Much happier with the Dunlop 606's.

I blame the operator

 

ditto. 

 

having busted my ass in the garage with knobbies at <2mph, i know it wasn't the bikes fault. 

 

it's -never- the bikes fault.

+1,  the deathwing are great on road tires imo,  they suck in the dirt,  but doable. 

 

For onroad with the 18/21 set up they were grat.

No wee buddy was of paramount importance and was saved in my arm! no damage to him. He is my best lil buddy and loves to ride.
