Own­ers’ tyre tips

RiDE (UK) - - Used Bikes -

Met­zeler Road­tec 01 £243 a pair

Good grip, good mileage, if a bit pricey. Ja­nis rec­om­mends the Sportec M7RR (£252 a pair) for out­right edge grip and sta­bil­ity, but for most road rid­ers, the 01 is fine.

Con­ti­nen­tal Road At­tack 3 £235 a pair

You ought to be able to squeeze 10,000 miles out of a pair of these, which helps to off­set the price premium over the Bridge­stones. Very good all-weather grip too. Bridge­stone BT023 £173 a pair These are orig­i­nal fit­ment on the MT-07, and a lot of own­ers stick with them, partly due to the price, and partly be­cause they do the job both pre­dictably and re­li­ably.
