You'd think so wouldn't you! I did have a nice 4 hour jaunt up the coast this weekend but the past few weeks have been a little wet and I've become soluble so I can't go out in the rain any morehmm, ok. They seemed solid enough to me, but I never tried to see exactly how solid they were. Rode the whole season with them (about 14k km) - never had any issues. Once I had them properly positioned (and that was key considering how small they are) - I pretty much never had to touch them again. Sadly, my season is pretty much done as it's winter in Canada now... meanwhile, you must be getting some nice riding weather... cheers!
Thanks for all your help Doctor!
