the part of this tyre which makes contact with the ground has very little tread; less rolling resistance, but, as these are not 'puncture proof' thorns and such like go through them really quickly
No, I do not recommend this product.

this is perfect for bike brake and gear cables, although it is a little light for bicycle chains as when it dries it don't leave much on the chain
I recommend this product!

if you´ve brought any of the carrera range of mountain bikes over the years and need a replacement wheel, look no further. mine where suffering from being ridden all year round to and from work so i decided to get one of these for the rear; one big upgrade over my last wheel set is the stainless steel spokes. the weight is good and about right for the amount they cost. the eyeleted rims will last longer; spreading the load better
I recommend this product!

i was thinking about spending a little more on a set of grips as they are a very important part of your cockpit, but, i was very surprised with these, excellent grip and if your not changing your levers and shifters too often perfect for a rider on a budget
I recommend this product!

just brought these tyres for my carrera subway; lighter weight than my previous tyres means better rolling. being 1.6 it means you don´t feel every little pot-hot on the road like some other thinner tyres, but because of the weight they roll just as fast.
i will not be buying any other tyres for commuting; these are simply lovely
although it might be a little hard to see when they need replacing as there is no tread on them
I recommend this product!

yes, these lights will fit dirt bikes. they fit on the seatpost and handlebar, so, as long as you have space available on both they will fit

What is the cost of a new wheel?

As the roads are not always suitable for bikes, I tend to find the likelihood of deforming the wheel to be quite high in practical use. What would be the cost of renewing a whole back wheel (and front wheel for that matter)?

Top 25 Contributor
on this site i can not write about prices of products, but, you can pop in to your local halfords and they will be happy to tell you the price, or even phone maybe

which rear pannier rack fits this bike.

Top 25 Contributor
Top 25 Contributor
you will need a pannier rack which is 'disk specific' as a normal one will not go around the disk brakes
