Coater87 - agree. I usually buy michelin. And get the right size! My som was putting new tyres on his pile of chinese crapola a few weeks ago, and I noted the front tube had overlapped itself in places. It was too big for the tyre - and had been fitted by a professional tyre co!

Wonder why the K70 didn't work for me. Heavier bike perhaps? Certainly had to lever myself off the seat after the slides and totter off to the laundry.

I will need tyres before next riding season. I'm thinking about buying Mitas brand.
