    Thanks for the videos! I saw you are using Flo wheels and was looking for your take on them. I looked at their website/products and am curious. Did you use them at IMWI? Would you? Thanks for the work you put into your blog. I enjoy your take on things.

      Hey Tom… Thanks for the nice comments about the blog. Yes, I used Flo wheels at Wisconsin and had a great ride. I really like them, but honestly haven’t ridden anything else. I hear they may be a tad heavier than some other wheels, but I like the fact that you don’t have to change out brake pads to ride them. I’m not the most mechanical by nature. Great for rolling hills. Let me know what you think if you get them. Doing IMWI this year?
