but most tyres are designed for completely different riding so it does slim the decision making process down a bit.i recomend michelin xcr dry if thats the type you are after ;-)

LOL.......for some reason it wont link to the tyres *hangs head in shame*

Steve Austin

it will but you need to include the product code somewhere in the address.and as i'm being helpful, 1.5's will fit your normal width rims fine

Cheers steve appreciated......will i need a track pump though do you reckon?

Steve Austin

slick tyres need to be ridden at high pressure so a track pump is definantly needed. Topeak make good floorpumps, unless you fancy pumping up to 100psi with a handpump

Track pumps are indeed a gift from the gods.For a habitual tyre changer such as myself, it is the truth and the light.The topeak joe blow sport is what I use, the gauge is at the top and easy to see.
