Not quite my PR3 world record, but... Front PR4 = 34,158+km
« on: September 09, 2017, 03:46:41 PM »
hiyas, I had my front PR4 replaced today after 34,158km with a new one in readiness for the big lap. No photos (d'oh!) but it still hadn't reached the wear bars - I reckon it still  had 2-3000 left in it too :grin .
So, it would have given my PR3 world record (37,000km) a run for its money. I'm know the PR4 doesn't have the extra 20% on the PR3 as marketed when they came out, but still damn good to me, especially with the  handling.

That is highly impressive, Rob.  I'm always happy with 25,000 out of my PR4s, but yours is way beyond that.  There are plenty of people out there expecting to get less than 10,000 out of tyres.   :eek
For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott

What pressures do you run Rob? That's impressive.

I run around 44psi. Number one trick is to check them regularly. Number two trick is to use reduced pressure in the right wrist.
