Hi Guys,

At the risk of repeating an often asked question I am looking to replace the tyres on my bike. Riding is going to be 70% road and balance dirt roads and trails. If I am repeating could some kindly soul guide me to a link offering advice?

Thanks,

Trailwings would then be the best.

Your bike currently have Anakee3's on which should be fine for what you are using it for.

I use Bridgestone TW41/TW42. At R2000 for a set including new tubes it is good value.

I currently have the Motoz Tractionator GPS on...
after about 6000 odd km, it kind of still looks new...
a bit more expensive, but considering you get more than twice the distance from a conventional tyre, worth a look....

Ek het Continental TKC 70 op my fiets gesit
Ry oral met hulle, gee goeie kilos en is goed op teer, doen glad nie sleg op grondpad nie
Ek is hoogs tevrede, sal weer opsit as hulle klaar is, al reeds so 13 000 km met die huidige stel gedoen
