LC rear tyre
« on: August 18, 2015, 09:58:54 am »
I need to replace the rear on my bike.Had an Anakee 3 on it as it came from the showroom floor and got about 8000 kms on it.Loved the tyre but the rear is all over the show around corners ons gravel which isn't too bad when you get used to it.
Had the Karoo 3 on it and nursed the tyre and got about 5000 kms out of it (but I never deflated the tyre below 2,7 bar which caused quite a bumpy ride....).I just love the karoo 3 but to really enjoy the ride and deflate when I hit gravel etc,I will not get 3000 kms out if it then.
Now I'm thinking of trying the Heidenau.Has anyone fitted a Heidenau and what do you think of it?
If you don't live on the edge,you take up too much space!!!

I have stock and can fit for you..

But your going to wait a bit before the reports start to come in as the tire was only launched a short while ago.

I would still recommend running them hard though. 2.8 bar etc. You just can not expect a 50/50 tire to do it all.

Ouman bought the first set from us.
Do not know if he has fitted them yet.
