added slicks

i borrowed paul’s slicks last night and installed them this morning. my max top speed on flat ground was around 15mph before i switched from my mountaing biking tires to the slicks. with these new tires on, i can go a little faster than 20mph. that’s a 5mph increase from just switching tires! if i got a road bike, that’d probably be at least another 5 mph.

i’m going to see how the commute to work will be with the new tires. it looks like there will be no mountain biking on my bike for a while, though. it didn’t take TOO long to switch out the tires, but it certainly isn’t something that i would want to do with regularity.
