Its always nice to have more tyre options, so I hope they arrive in SA

I find it meaningless.

They're all at the same price point.

A bunch of cheap garbage, and everything else at a premium.

Hand made apparently. I've always had a soft spot for AMC, their wheels were awesome and kept me very happy on Alu (road and dirt) when the world was going carbon crazy. I'm very stoked that they are back in the game even if it is minus the main man. Was a bummer when they went bust (And I could get any deals on any NOS). Remembering feeling like a legend with those smoking gun rims and everyone scoffing about wide rims. Admittedly they didn't like alot of the trails on the black end of the spectrum. 

Good to know they have their head on right and seem to be offering tan sidewalls on all their gravel tyres. 

Cycling news also ran a feature (or press release). https://www.cyclingnews.com/news/american-classic-launches-a-brand-new-road-and-tyre-line-in-the-us/

And now I have hope on all my bikes! Killer bees to the front. 

I prefer the opposite.

 

I tweaked my race wheels (campag) silent and not so deadly now.

Hey there Eeyore, had a bad day? Need a hug to find the meaning in it all? I'm sure there is a soccer mom with very positive text based post on facebook that will show you joy in the world. 

Fair enough. The BTwin rebadged Michelins are fantastic value.

Am classic didn't go bust. Bill just got gatvol of all the std's changing. The retooling costs was doing him in so he shut the shop before it got to the point of going bust. It was a voluntary closure. He's still pretty uptight about what the bike industry has evolved it, a golfers paradise (GP plates nogal)
