Thought I'd bump this back to page 1, since us new guys seem to be always talking about tyres/tires here. Some nice pics in this thread.

Shipping tires

As long as I bumped this to page 1, I don't think it's a hijack to ask this question. It seems like there are lots of tires sold in Europe that would work for my hack. And the prices are great! But, shipping costs suck! Is there any way to ship a tire from Europe to the U.S. for cheap? Especially if time is not a factor. I'm thinking like by container ship. Anybody found a cheap way to do this?

My rear 185/55-15 Maxxis, have had others, harder and softer compounds, this seems the best so far.


135R15 Nankang, not long fitted, so not sure how good it will be.


135R15 Nankang, in the background is the previous 130/90-15 Pirelli and a 140/80-17 Dunlop Arrowmax I was given to try but haven't yet.

Nice looking set up you have there Jeff..Any more photos you would like to share with us
I like the way your front brake caliper is set up .Is that how it come or did you do that your self ?.
The wifes bike has the same front end but with solid brake caliper mounts. I would like to change it to the same as yours (floating brake calipers). As the front end of her bike lifts up a long way when she brakes .

Pops, Bob Martin Engineering did the front end in 2001, just like it is now. The floating calipers are good, but they tend to get a bit of lever travel when the pads wear, also a bugger to remove the front wheel. I'll post some pics in the 'lets see em' thread so we don't get off topic.
