Which tyre was is pls?
A pair of rocket Ron's, there were bought on the basis of "they won't last five minutes around here" so my risk, soft sidewalls and my heft mean they can burp a little on the rear and then start to get worse quickly as the sidewalls are very flexy, have a cut right on the bead after a low pressure event

Front is fine and still on, quite like it

I'm planning to use my completely inappropriate on one tiktik for the winter event and winter Jen Ride for it's Land rover mark3 abilities (gets over everything, just slowly)

Hmmm... sounds like an offer of sending a spare I can't refuse :lol:

Remind me details. I shall send a replacement for that rear with a Chronicle. Just discard that appropriately :-bd
Address details pls etc...

Two WTB byways 700c x 40 (more like 38).

I've had a right old faff with these running them tubeless - getting them seated plus I've had a few punctures (all patched on the inside - 2 on the back and one on the front plus there may be a thorn hole in the back one that sealant should get) so I'm giving up - they have only done a few hundred k so plenty life left. A pity as they work well - smooth on the crown with knobs on the side for cornering.

Out of courtesy I'll offer them to Boab first as he bunged me some tyres. Otherwise feed the bear and I'll post 'em to whoever wants them.

Thought I'd added these but obviously not.

Pair of Giant Gavia tyres. Meant to last pretty well but I don't like em due to not being grippy enough in the wet downhill. I was running at least one of them tubeless as the rim on the other wheel wasn't ready to take tubeless.

Lots and lots of life left. 700 x 25c. Just pay postage please.

I'm fine for gravel tyres, so crack on.
There are theories at the bottom of my jargon.
