Bored so I though I'd mock the frame up and see how my choice of tyres faired or should that be choice failure!!!

Try another choice.... FAIL !!!

never mind the tyres, you need to sort out that steerer tube length first! :wink:


Personally I think the black tyres look ok.

It's what they had on them as original kit.

Back in the day i bought a BH Coronas Replica (entry level model). The frame was Grisley (aka cheap aluminium), Shimano STX-RC shifter, EXS brakes, EXS cranks and Michelin Wild Gripper Sprint rear tire like the one in the picture:

I remember having to pedal up a muddy path and feeling the tire slipping, it was a horrible traumatic experience.

My advise, run away from them like the plague...
