the tyre may say tubeless on it but it can (usually) be used on a Transalp but it will need a tube in it.

As for type/brand etc, take your pick!
Don’t be silly, it’s Tourance or Anakee 2 :D

Anakee 3 looks too road focussed, but if you stay on road, that makes sense.
My recently aquired 700 Transalp had Michelin Pilot Activ road tyres fitted. They were brand new so I’ll, have to wait; nice grip though.

most garages i have come across will only fit tyres they have supplied themselves

so...how do people get tyres fitted they have bought online? do they fit them themselves?

Obviously only speaking for myself, yes I fit them myself.


I fitted a tyre many moons ago and nicked the tube, so let others do it for years.

A few years back after a local dealer not fitting the tyres properly, I went back to doing it myself.

For tubed tyres, got one of these, makes life a lot more comfortable:

Got two garages round here that will do tyre changes, one of them charges a Tenner per tyre, The other charges Twenty, but this one gives you a receipt, also wheels have to be off bike :thumb:
