I will accept that. One question... since the car tire has more contact area would that not make it more stable during normal riding conditions? Not the knee dragging, peg scraping, unsafe riding conditions described by some posters? With regards to inclement weather, most riders jump in their cage making that arguement a mute point for both of us.
