  1. Was looking for new rubber for the missus over the festive season. Per chance I saw that Takelot had some tyres on offer from Michelin. Keen to try these out, as I believe Michelin is new on the tyre market in SA. At R650 a pop, they seemed priced right. (View the ad here: https://www.takealot.com/michelin-wildgrip-r2-ts-tubeless-tyre-27-5cm-x-2-25cm/PLID49606219 ) They took a couple of days to get here, but received them early Jan. I was quite impressed with fairly aggressive looking rubber. The tyres has directional indicators for front and rear indicated on the sidewall. They went on to the DT swiss Spline 1900's effortlessly, and seated with a satisfying (and equally terrifying) pop-pop. I use a compressor to fit tyres, as the track-pump see-if-your-triceps-can-make-it, doesnt work for me. (You may wonder if the compressor is in my lounge, my wife loves cycling, and does not mind me with parts and stuff in the house, but I think the compressor in the lounge may be a push too far.) The front went on equally easy, inflated and seated effortlessly. I did check direction about 3 times before final installation. The finished product: We will be taking the new rubber for a shakedown ride at Avianto this afternoon, and I will report back.
