    Tyres from the land of Stepfam

    I went riding with a group from work last night and two of them had new tires on their bikes. I have one pretty worn one and asked how they liked theirs. They ride a lot and have good equipment so I think they are pretty well informed. The new tires were Michelin Pro 2 race tires and they got them off of the internet from England. The name of the site is http://www.probikekit.com/ and they have a very good selection and they had the Pro 2 tyres for $7.00 cheaper than any other site I found. They also have free shipping. My friend said it takes about a week to get them. It seems odd that you can buy something from England and have it shipped here cheaper than you can buy here but oh well. I am anxious to get them and see how they look and ride on my bike. I got the ones with the yellow trim to go with the emblems on my bike.

    Oops I spelled Stapfam wrong in the title, sorry

    Don't mind what you call me as long as it is not at full volume from 3 ft away.

    Surprised that anyone is buying from the UK as the exchange rate is not that good. Mind you- This is a European product- French- so you are probably being fleeced in the first place. Looked through the site and there are some good prices on this so could be worth a look.

    Probikekit is a favored site in the Road forum. The prices are low.

    I've used PBK a few times. They offer some really good deals in spite of the exchange rate. Only gripe I have is with their packaging. Lots of stuff is shipped in plastic bags, no box or carton involved. With tires it shouldn't be a problem.
