New set of Roadtec 01s Just bought.
« on: December 08, 2018, 12:15:19 PM »
Just bought a pair of 01s, ready for next years touring. Great price from Oponeo £220.00 delivered. BM have quoted me £20 fitting when it goes in for its service in the new year.

I'm going to those next, very highly rated across the board. Got a new set of Bridgestones to wear out on my new toy before then though .... come on Spring!
Not personally qualified to confuse cats, but I can recommend an extremely good service.

Had a set fitted in September. Great tyre. Ride magazine have also rated it their tyre of the year.

seem sluggish on turn in and have a rather flat profile. they did well in all conditions I rode them in though. cold, hot, rain, dry etc.

Nothing turns in like a Road Smart but these Mich 05’s are interesting,i’ve Ridden on RS’s for years but borrowed a friends GT earlier this year and had some Mich 5’s fitted.

I really like the roadsmart 3's (third set) but thinking of trying the road 5's next. several buddies raving how good they are.

Yep many riders do rave over them, myself included. This will be my third set. ( on various bikes ) you can rag the hell out of them, and they do not give out even when they are just about done on wear... But tyres are an emotive subject it really is whatever floats your boat.
