This is the same tyre when it’s new. The tread pattern hasn’t changed, I’d forgotten what they looked like. Ok, so maybe the old tyre was a bit worn, but it lasted well.

The tyre shop had sold the tyres I ordered, which they had in stock last week and were supposedly putting to one side. Twats. I ended up with a different make. It’s a good brand but it cost more, I hope they last as well.

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!

  1. Terrible service from the tyre shop. Should have got the tyres for the same price. Time to name and shame!

  2. G’day Mark, great that you caught up with Glenn in Perth and the trip is going well. What brand and type of tyre are you running mate?

    Stay safe.


  3. Name and shame was tempting Chris, but it wouldn’t achieve anything. If I run out of rubber half way through Mongolia however, the gloves are off!!

    Dean, I’m running Mitas E-07s all round. No issues at all, except when the tyre shop don’t have them in. I’m trying a Hidenou on the back, so far so good.

  4. I will name and shame in another forum, Back from Kalgoorlie tonight Mark, been offline due to shit phone signal. Great to meet you, take care and we will follow your trek
