Fatter flatter tyres increase your speed?!

You may not give a monkeys about what speed you ride, but never the less , if you can go faster without putting any more energy in why wouldn’t you?

I have always been guided by the school of thought that a narrow tyre @ 115 psi is the best way to roll.

Well that school of thought is being challenged. Apparently go a bit wider and let a bit of air out and you will be laughing.  You can read all about the  test and the results and the reasoning behind them here.

If you do decide to buy some new tyres come down and see us. We have some very nice tyres in stock.
