This is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. I ordered a pair of 20×2.20″ Maxxis Holy Rollers for Lael’s Hooligan. She insisted that she wear out the current tires, 1.5″ Kenda Kwest slicks, but once the tires arrived I couldn’t resist. I admire her resolve to wear through tires, but these Lil’ Rollers are tons of fun. They add to the diverse absurdity of the Hooligan. The current build incorporates comfortable stylish parts from Velo Orange, some lightweight Revelate Designs bags for daily commute-packing, and these little Maxxis beefcakes. Anymore, Lael loves Maxxis tires. She likes upright handlebars, lightweight camping loads, and chunky rubber.
Some fun LED lights light up the night. Thanks to Linda and Lanny for these fun holiday gifts.
The tire rolls well, although it is marketed as a BMX/Dirt Jump/Urban Assualt tire. For Lael, it’s a versatile commuting tire that can hit the trails in a pinch.
Some comfortable Clarks and large platform pedals make for happy feet. These new Velo Orange Sabot pedals are buttery smooth as they use a series of sealed cartridge bearings. Rounded pins improve traction.
Of course, every practical bike must have a bell. This is my favorite way to mount one.
A couple of Hooligans.
