On a recent Saturday night, our friend Rick was pedaling home from a night out in Ballard back to his fishing boat at Seattle's Fisherman Terminal when he found himself off the docks and plunged into the dark waters. Not a great way to end a night.
Luckily he was packing Schwalbe Fat Frank tires on his Rivendell and was able to swim out and locate his bike floating upside down by her cream tires. A few months ago Rick equipped his Rivendell with Schwalbe Fat Franks tires, the cream balloon racers. If you've never had the pleasure of cruising on these marshmallows over brutal winter streets you may want to consider it. Cheers to Schwalbe for making tires that save our bikes from swimming with the fishes.
