It's 1 o'clock in the morning..

and I’m watching the Athens Olympics men’s road time trial in-between fitting new tyres and brake pads to the Pug.

A recent spate of flats means fitting more durable training tyres is a wise idea – at least while I’m in base training just clocking up kays. They have to be more durable than Pro Race. They have to be cheaper than Pro Race. They have to be red. I settled on Schwalbe Stelvio front and rear.
