Great day for a ride on the Zizzo.




OEM Freewheel failed after only 200 miles but I had this Drift Maniac 11-34t on hand and it is performing quite well.

That is a pretty large jump, and definitely not a smooth and linear progression through the gears. Was that from the factory, or did you add this?

It has got to feel like that last unexpected step when descending a flight of stairs.

Thanks. Though I would disagree that it's not a heavy tire.

These are BMX tires, not road tires !

And as always, low price seems your only requirement !

Folks, I am outta here. The J!PE guy is too much. See ya...
Again, price, price price, only taking price into account !

Wherever a product is manufactured, there are other criteria to take into account.

Product differ in material used to manufacture them, complexity of design and complexity of manufacturing, time needed to design and manufacture them, method of manufacturing and environmental impact of manufacturing. And eventually, product performances, reliability and durability,

A 10 times more expensive product can at the end be more economical and more environmentally friendly than the cheaper one because it performs better, need less maintenance and last longer.

those look fine. For those who want to pay $100 to save 220 g (110g part tire), they are a fine option.
