Tyres

Does any one know where i can get some decent tyres at a non arse rape price?

Looking for a pair, 240/45/17 rear, 120/70/17 front.

Our bike tyres seem to be such a rip off, they last so little yet cost on average 5x that of a budget car tyre- grrr

Got the engine running on a home made loom. Now need to find a pipe bender and decent welder (or both in one) to make the rear frame.

Also need to source some cheap YSS 450mm rear shocks

Re: E-Scooters

There are a few Yank ebikes that tickle my pickle but at $3500 ish its not viable. Was up at Jem’s Speed Shop last week and seen KTM electric push bikes retailing at £6k!!

Re: E-Scooters

It's fair point, and unfortunately whatever they do we can bet it's only a matter of time until we'll see a story of someone riding down the motorway on one one day, lol, but I think it's meant more for city / urban use Live Forever or Die Trying The Boris bikes in Liverpool didn’t last long.

Re: Fishing for lurkers...

I still stick my nose in here occasionally but worsening arthritis in my hands means the bikes have had to go. When auto gearboxes are good and appear on the right bikes, I'll do a reappraisal. Strangely enough my dad was on about this last night. He is looking to sell his GL1000 for an automatic V...
