Tyre Recommendations

Postby rdp_au » Wed Jan 20, 2010 1:55 pm

The trusty bentech has 20/26 inch wheels. They are currently fitted with Primo Comet slick tyres which are in need of replacement. I could just fit the same again, but I'd be interested in any recommendations for alternatives.

Rds,

David

I have conti Travel contacts on my city going MTB for the last three years.

Have never, yes never had a flat and it lives on Melbournes streets where glass is not what you would call "rare."

They seem to roll pretty well, are definitely nice and quiet, grip well, better on the black top obviously but they do okay on the gravel and stuff you find on bike paths.

Have a set on the way from Wiggle for the girlies new bike.

David,

With a question like that you could easily overload the servers.
From a guy who has spent many years making recumbent trikes and spending a huge amount of time testing you will find Ian Sims casual interview/talk with the Trike shop owners and friends in USA very interesting.
You will need to sign up and get an email linking you to the videos but they are very interesting.
Try this:

Although you do not have to buy anything his findings are very interesting knowledge.

regards,

william.
