The aging Nokian NBX tyres I’ve been running on the 456 for a while have been replaced with a new set of Bontrager Jones ACX tyres in a generous 2.35" size. This is a fairly unremarkable event, but gave me the ideal opportunity to post and entry with the above title. I’d heard rumours of them being fairly trick to fit as they are the tubeless-ready version. However the front went on with very little trouble, but getting the first bead on the back wheel was a bit of a chore, especially when I had to remove and refit it as the logo wasn’t lined up with the valve-hole properly.
This mornings breakfast was partaken of at the excellent Velo Lounge, a full english with a side order of fries, washed down with two mugs of coffee. A very welcome meal given that I hadn’t eaten since Nandos yesterday lunchtime.
