    Hey Steve, read your book ‘Bioform’ very, very good, Thank You for filling in some of the ‘pot hole’s! I really want to read your article/post’s but only the title’s come up or get reloaded when I click on them any advice?

    Hola —- Are Schwalbe Big Apple or Big Apple Plus tires more comfortable is a question that shows the asking person(s) have never rode with them.

    Of curse either design is a better ride that what a “pallet jack” offers.

    At the end of Your Ride – you will also feel better because you have not been bouncing on the pavement.

    All of the above also relates to “energy used and a speed”.

    Hola — Another part of this is one may even purchase The Big Apples at:×2.0-Big-Apple-Black-Reflex-Bike-Tire/32296367 . This is good if you are planning ahead or going on “a extended tour”.

    I normally use 40 pounds of Nitrogen ( which is free at tire shops when “they” see a bike wheel ).

    West of The Mississippi River you will need The Big Apple Plus Tyres.

    I have an early prototype Greenspeed (marketed as the “Tri-Muter), very light and rigid. The guys at Utah Trikes recommended the Big Apples, and I have been much more comfortable with them, running around 30 lbs.

    Hi Bruce,
    Just read your question after three days off. Thanks for the kudos on Bioform. That book helped me solidify my thoughts on life and what it’s all about (the eternal questions of the human species). Regarding your question about viewing on your computer, I really have no meaningful answer there – don’t know what’s happening to hinder your digital experience. If you know someone who is a whiz with computers, perhaps they could shed some light. My mom and sister (985 miles away) turn to me when they have computer issues – sometimes I can figure it out through email or phone, sometimes not (usually not). I’ve not had reports of website anomalies other than yours, so I’d say off the top of my head that something may be amiss at your end (browser issue perhaps?). My only recommendation is to view the posts on the “Post” page of the main menu, where all the posts show up. When you are on the website, it is not necessary to click on the post to read it (clicking on the title takes you to another window so you can comment, but it is not necessary to click on the title to read the post on the Post page.
