I was a happy Shinko guy until a big tread lug separated and flew off the tire. I was rolling at a good clip on the road from Nata to Kasane, Botswana and had no idea until I realized my turn signals weren't working. Looking for the cause I discovered that the tread had flown up and tore through the wiring under the rear fender. Anyway, you see the exposed carcass. I was a long way from home and had to dismount the tire, cut off my running shoe sole and glue it to the inside of the tire, and then put a tube in. I was able to limp home the last 350 kms to Lusaka. Anyway, they were doing great up to then but I can't trust them anymore.
