My 8 year old daughter took these photos on the Santa Monica Pier.
Bikes in numerical order:
What a talented and imaginative daughter you have.
Nice pictures! I hope she keeps it up; she has a good eye.
Great photos. I wonder how the bad reputation of clincher tires/rims fared in the run? It looks like less than half of the bikes had them to start with. How many flats/failures I wonder vs the later rims??? Thanks, Paul
Lots of bikes had clinchers. Steve Barber had one blow out on day 1. No crash though. My rear clincher went flat on day 6 or so, but it was uneventful. There is one security bolt on my back wheel. I keep mine at 40 psi, not at the 80psi that many guys run. But many folks did run drop center rims.
Now that we don’t have to worry about nails from horseshoes or from hobnail boots, flats are much less common than they were 100 years ago.
