Kona had several sets of matched tyre pairs through the late 80s/09s such as the Break & Enter pair I have on a 1994 Sex One......

Others were Scratch & Sniff, Maximum & Reaction, A:\Drive & B:\Drive

Are there any other ones out there :?:

Propulsion and Equilibrium on a 91 Cindercone.
The Equilibrium was fine, but the Propulsion was quickly changed to a Smoke.

Break & Enter were on my '98 Kila, have a set of Scratch and Sniff in the garage - fancy a swap?.

Maximum/reaction were on my '91 Fire Mountain, and as others have said, Equilibrium/Propulsion similar era, but on the higher spec bikes. Also remember Lumpy/Gravy and A:/B:Drive (both tyres and on the 'puter) - :-)
