I too have ridden a few and IMO they handle like crap. Dumbsiders are just too embarrassed or stubborn to admit their folly.

Its the pink shirt, shaved legs and riding position that gives it away.

if you don't mind, would you please list the car tires you've ridden (on a bike), air pressure, length of ride. these are pertinent to clarify your experience.

From running car tyres to hanging off on the street this thread delivers the fail every time.
