bad tyre day !!

the newest of my specialised s- works tyres tread decided to part it- self from its casing, it wasnt adered in large lengths i took it back to the lbs i bought it from & they changed it for me , no problems top marks to bike & pack. they were unable to source another specialised tyre so i settled for a continental gator-skin, my oldest s- works tyre is on the front & seems fine @ the moment , has anyboby else had a problem with these tyres or is mine an isolated case ??

Old Dog types with his nose, so he cant hit the shift key and a letter at the same time. He wants to know if tread separation is a common problem with Specialized S-Works tires, and if it should cause him to worry about the old one he has on his front wheel. I think this is a manufacturing problem in one particular batch of tires that would not show itself after a lot of use - so dont worry

Thanks AndrewP for explaining to D*Alex the content of the post but I dont think he,s realy a "special needs person", i suspect hes just trying to piss us off . Maybe it was the spelling of tyres that got him confused ?? LOL
I hope your right (rite ??) about the my older tyre (tire). Anyway the Gatorskin rides (rydes ?) great, new tires (tyres) always seem to ride well. Thanks again.
If tyres is spelt tires is type spelt tipe ?
P.s : Whats a Pidgin anyway ?:confused:
Regards greywolf
