Smoother than a porn star's bits, Freedom ThickSlick Sport looks almost identical to the ThickSlick Elites reviewed recently but saves 80g and £20 (pr) over their urban siblings. Admittedly, you lose the Kevlar belt and sidewalls but put through the same paces, ours seemed friskier, just as impenetrable with more refinement to boot.
Smiling , is it wrong to do when you are struggling to get to the top of a hill, breathing in air from a different county and someone overtakes you with a polite 'Hello' just as you are reaching the top?
As i was out riding today i found myself smiling more and more, maybe it was because there were a lot more riders out, maybe it was because the sun was shining or low and behold, no near misses with buses etc.
Or could it be that cycling is so good for the soul that you automatically smile like an idiot no matter what is thrown at you?
Smile and be happy
