Anyone run this tire? My local has them. They look like they'll last a good while.. and they look like they'll look really grippy on any surface too...

Im assuming they'll be good becasue its an Odyssey product with Aitkens name on it lol

But yeah. Im just looking for opinions as my Primo Morrow tires are almost bald :/

I'm quite sure tyres are not intended to be "food".

I've had like 4 sets of Aitkens, I have the 2.45 on atm. Good tire, better than the other lower PSI rated ones. However, the ole 2.25 K-lyte is the best I've had so far I think

That's pretty much my style too haha. It just felt so strange like it ruined my pop. Big bars and tires seem to do that for me.

I had some aitkens. I sold them but they were great for almost any surface. They felt heavy though, thats pretty much the only thing I didnt like about them.

The smaller 2.25 aitkens inflate to like 2.3 or 2.4 at 60-80psi. I never measured them properly but they always were wider than my other advertised 2.4 tires.

Id still go the bigger route if you can fit them though.

Im actually on the market for a kevlar bead 2.4 or bigger. The donnastreets seem to be my best option but im still looking. They make an Eclat Mirage 2.45 now but its sold out everywhere and I dont know If I trust their measurements anymore.

I measured my 2.35 mirage at 70psi and it was 2.28". Im sure it would grow a bit at its rated 110 psi but that feels horrible riding street with that much psi.

I measured my dugan 2.4"s UNINFLATED at 2.42...lol

Companies need to disclose what psi they used to get their measurement.

You know danscomp is maybe not the best for ordering but the info they provide on their products is awesome! They even list things like inflated diameter, inflated width and you can search by size. Not just with tires their website is super detailed.

I have the donnastreets, they have been good so far.
I've washed out a few times but that was only because I painted my front tyre pink.

I'm going to let our Mother Earth educate my tires. I don't need some fascist structure brainwashing them into some twisted binary gender world.
