Can I guess?

The xr is similar and the book states 15psi but it has rim locks. At 15psi it gets a bit squirmy on the road and the front tyre looses all its shoulder knobblies in a couple of hundred miles so it would seem sensible to bump them up a bit for on road use.

And there are no sweeties on the jar. They are down in Brighton with BobA,

Michelin AC10 both ends Bob....Thanks for that.

So I'll need to take all the gear then....:confused:

Just waiting on CMS for a special nut for the caliper and front brake lever pivot and I'm on the road/trail. :)

Ordered 21st December...not impressed...they charge enough for handling to keep you informed if it's not in stock...I realise it was over Christmas
Every time I check their site it's still waiting to be despatched....:rolleyes:

I use AC10's as well, great trail tyres but give 'em some respect on wet tarmac or they'll bite you.

If you're ever a bit flush consider a spare set of wheels with more road-biased tyres on for the summer/commuting/road trips (I have Michelin T63's at the mo), wheels are usually fairly cheap to come by on eblag.

Spare wheels came with it Bob.

Worn Trail Wing on the back and Heidenau K60 on the front (Noticed that was the same size as my Alp)

I've got a spare michelin T66 that could replace the Heidenau if need be.

Just got some tyre soap to play with.....

Just need the time, really.....sorting...:icon_smile:
