Sunny day. I waited until it got over 50 before riding. Nice and warm in the sun. Took Dan’s Trail down. 

First ride with the Thudbuster. Couldn’t really tell when it was compressing which I guess is good.

Great Tenners ride. Dry, not too cold, no wind. I felt good after a couple of days off the bike.

Nov. 3rd 60 degrees sunny no wind. It doesn't get much better than that. A shorter version of the ride we did Dec. 2017. Today there was lots of fresh gravel. I was trying to see how much air I could let out of my tires. I actully got down to 15 psi in the front which was fine on the gravel, but a bit squishy on pavement. In the back I still had 32 psi. So I'm thinking 25 psi is probably a good lower limit on this bike for loose gravel.
