SweetskinZ reflective tyres
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.

I seem to recall seeing something like this in the past and indeed according to SweetskinZ they’ve been around since 1999. Claiming to offer not just memorable tyre patterns and enhanced night safety but ‘the highest quality rubber’ for the ‘adventurous mountain biker’, these could be the next big thing on the trails.

Then again, you may just get laughed out court. I quite like the snakeskin version myself, I wonder if they make them in tubeless?

Er, Sweet!

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.

    Cyglo Night Bright Tyres

    The Cyglo Tyre from Night Bright Tyre Ltd offers an interesting enhancement to road and commuter cyclist safety. But does it work?
