Biggest hype for one of the worst tyres ever.

just bought a pair of ( ok - NOT retro ) black Onza Porc 2 tyres off e-bay ... from Mike's Super Cycles ......12.95 a pair .......asked him if he had any white ones .....sadly not .....but he could get some made if there was demand for around 500 pairs ....... anyone ?


has this guy no time to watch the price of retro stuff, he could make a small fortune from re-issuing these tyres.

he could make money back after the first 100


Maybe the dude is way smarter than we think.... He is already busy with them and soon expects his 1st order for over 500pcs :mrgreen:

supply & demand. once people know theres 500available, they aint gonna make £120 a pair like previous ebay prices..

hell a 1.95 tyre that weighs 820g & lasts 3 rides (if you dont skid). I never rated them either.
