Folding tyre for a tenner, I can't go wrong me think?

Spiritual successor to the 'Wild Slipper'?

Indeed, what could go wrong? :D

Well, I'll re-consider this buy. But then again only tyres which I complain about are Onza's porcs so my needs are low.

I'm working on the concept I never go fast enough to need good high speed grip.

If you can find a Dart this is a good buy

Right, enough of this pishing aboot. I'm knocking off work to go shopping. Aiming to spend about £30 total. Doubtless that will go wrong.

Define shopping.
I assume it's not going in and out of endless shops, not buying anything because you can't decide, or is it straight into the one shop with the goods, buying and effing off out again?

A bit of both. Three shops then buying and effing off.

Done. The Salsa feels great on the short run I did on it. It is officially a working bike. Feels slightly long in the toptube but I've got a 90mm stem on the way that will sort that.
