Free, well if your in Bristol and want to pick up..three old 700x23 continental tyres..no good for road use but ideal for turbo trainers. Also an old Mavic MA2 rim, 36h. Got quite a bit of life left but the eyelets are rusty., again good for a turbo wheel if you've got an old 36h hub knocking around.
Going to the tip at the weekend, so be quick.
If your not in Bristol but really really want them ill send at cost.
Hi guys and girls, I'm new to the forums so please be nice!
I'm looking to upgrade the worn tyres on my Mavic Aksiums and have narrowed it down to Continental Grand Prix 4000S or the Schwalbe Ultremo ZX Evolution HD.
Purely from an aesthetic viewpoint I'm leaning towards the Schwalbe's as I can colour coordinate , but have heard they have weaker side walls and are more prone to punctures that the Continentals.
I do about 100miles a week on the road as my commute, with the occasional longer weekend ride.
Anyone have experience or recommendations to go for either of these?
The arrival of Continental Nordic Spike 120 couldn’t have been timed better. 120 steel studs combined with an open, knobbly tread allowed me to cut a steady swathe through otherwise impassable back roads. However, a modicum of caution is required when accelerating – especially over icy tarmac – and their portly 42mm profiles can present compatibility hassles with more traditional ‘cross, touring and hybrid frames.
