Any suggestions for a new front tyre

After the weekend's ride, it looks like the 952 I've had on for a while is shedding the side s. I've seen this with ED12's before, but never with a 952. Time for a new tyre. Any suggestions folks?


Thanks in advance
Mark

Agreed a good tyre. Doesn't have the grip levels if the 403 but certainly feels a bit more positive.

Took me a while to get used to the 403 after the MC5 but the added grip is hard to pass up.

looking at the wear on the centre knods of your tyre i'd say you had a pretty good run with it anyway! if you liked it you may as well stick with it.

Safety Turd. Because the only skid marks should be in the dirt.
