I think MTB Dave read waaaaay too much into 44 racings comment, and even if 44 racing is a tyre snob (which I didn't see it as) then it would only be one persons opinion.

What would be next? re-paints? grips? inner tubes? bolts? brake pads?

Nah, if it makes a bike rideable, it's all good for me - I have 3 bikes with original tyres too.
Hi comment was also aimed directly at me, because we've known each other for years and its a bit of an in joke between us, not a reflection on anyone's tyres, just a bit of banter between us.

I think rules 16 & 17 are pretty clear. I hope Xizang is reentered. It's a grail for me. I have the equivalent Zaskar LE but haven't had the opportunity to get a Xizang yet.
I have taken different photos now and changed the bottles still not sure

@raidan73 am I able too keep my bike in this month, the Xizang?

Unless there are any objections etc, I feel the 6 bottles of Estrella may have led too my overreaction.

OK so based on the tyre chat and some people's hatred of anything "modern" my bike is likely to be run out of town, but I enjoy a challenge, so here goes! 😂
