Say I lack the whole retro ethos if you like but why do you need 'retro' winter tyres. Surely tyres of any age including modern that work in winter conditions are what your after. Retro correct kit looks good on a bike prepped for a photo shoot but in our usually horrid winters stuff that does the job is surely more important
Totally agree with this, retro tyres may look good but if you want to enjoy riding your bike they are crap compared with modern offerings, I've just bought a pair of Maxxis Beavers from CRC for around £13.00 each and they are superb!
I don't doubt that modern tyres are better than older ones, but then follows the argument that modern bikes are better than older ones..... which is not what I'm aiming for (or the point of this forum).
I like the tyres I used to ride on 15-20 years ago and I actually do ride them not just use them for photo shoots.
Was wondering about velociraptors or smoke/dart
