The Bridgestone S21s are out now but they don't have a rear in the stock 140 size yet. They're pricier, too, at around $143 for the 150 rear.Nice looking tire special made for small displacement cycles. I just purchased some s20 in the stock size. getting delivered today.
$212.68Not really looking for comparisons on this thread, thanks. Bird - feedback appreciated - right at $200 for the set? .
Front and back, added better images.Awesome, is that just the rear tire or did you get both front and back?
Ill give that a shot tomorrow and report back.Since you're first out on these, I'd be interested in seeing what maybe 28F/32R cold would do if you're game. Better, worse?
Hard to say. I don't have enough miles to gauge longevity but everyone that touches them says they feel very sticky. I like em.So I wonder do the 140 h get the grippy compound or the mileage stuff.?
Longevity and prior experience with them. A few of my friends use this tire exclusively and it came on my R1 stock and was a good tire. Good mileage and grip.
I find them forgiving when you wear them down. Dunlops for me in the past felt the best all the way through the tires lifespan if that makes any sense.
I bet some of those certainly could be better tires but I don't like to change every 3500 miles. I understand most not having interest in this tire.
Lowered the pressure and hooked up nicely especially on a few freeway ramps passing people. I would not go any lower than that on the pressure thats for sure. I would probably go up 1 on the rear, but I will wait for hot days and see how it gets real hot.
Easier to ride, way less shock, but transitioning side to side is a bit sluggish. All normal stuff you would expect. Lots more drag, bigger contact patch.
I think any radial tire would be a vast improvement. I can finally hold a line and just relax and ride instead of being on Mr Toads Wild Ride.
