As you like your Panaracers, why not go for the Pasela tyre?

Everyone has City Jets.... :facepalm:

.....including me... :oops:

The Jets arrived yesterday so got them fitted to the set of wheels I got from Nevadasmith (RM20's DX hubs). Took the BV out for a blast this afternoon...wow it flys! Never really ridden anything other than MTB's with knobblies so was a bit of a revalation for me! Took it out on some country lanes near me and managed a little over 30 miles in 1.5hours which for me is something! And a top speed just over 40mph! Amazed at the difference in the ride and with 1.95's still plenty of "cushioning" against the shite road surface!

So if Bugsy Malone were to ever ride a bike it would look like this! Very "1920's gangster" as my wife put it! (tommy gun packed in the camelbak!)

Thanks for the advice

Doug
