    It says free postage to the USA, but is it free postage to Canada? Remember, they're shipping from the UK.

    Yeah I've ordered some Michellin Pro Race 3 tyres from them before. They were about $60 CDN a pair. They have a coupon (can10) that I think gives you the free shipping and 10% off the order.

    PBK is always 10% off and free shipping to Canada, don't need no coupon for that.

    same thing it means for any tires: it has a kevlar bead, as opposed to a wire one, allowing for the tire to be folded up, but not mess up the bead.
    If we knew what we were doing, it wouldn't be called research.

    I see, what advantages do you have over a tire that cannot be folded? It makes sense, but at the same time it doesn't.

    You can tansport it with you in a bag so if your tire pops on the road you can change it there. A non folding tire isn't very portable.
