Subject: Report on Scorcher tyres fitted "NoTubes" to GTC Trike

Ian, so far I love the new wheels, tires and "NoTubes" system! I apologize for not getting back to you sooner...between an injury and hunkering down avoiding the cold weather, I didn't ride much in the last couple of months. I sure do prefer overheating to getting chilled.

Anyway, the new wheels are in place, and I've had my first puncture...I heard it go pop/hiss on my way home from work, got real nervous but kept riding, and within several revolutions it had sealed itself...plenty of air to go on...then earlier this week I got to ride with Larry again...despite my being out of shape I beat the pants off him. I think my speed is more than 10% faster than before.

I finally found a good box and have packed up the old wheels to send back to you. I should be able to get them shipped by the end of the week.

Thanks for everything!
