Over on BikeRadar they have a short piece about the SweetskinZ bike tyres. If you can get past the stupid company name these actually look pretty interesting, especially for commuting. By day, an ‘extrovert’ coloured tyre, by night a traffic hypnotising kaleidoscope.
As Mountain Bikers that regularly thrash our bikes up hill and down dale it’s easy to forget the investment we’ve got tied up in our machinery. Especially if the bike is a couple of years old and has had a few upgrades along the way we don’t always appreciate what it would cost us to replace our favourite rides.
