I know this isn't the tire section, but I wanted to reach more riders. I just installed new Shinko's on my bike and can't believe the transformation it made. I've never experienced such a dramatic change on any bike I've ever had and the number is close to 50 over the years by a simple tire change. Steering is super light and the ride has improved 100%. Before, expansion cracks and imperfections in the road jarred me somewhat. Now I barely even notice them. Unless the bike shop adjusted my suspension while they installed the tires, the Shinko's were the reason. Great price on an awesome tire. Now, let's see what kind of life I get out of them.
