• Yeah Newport. I think they use Vittorias on their hire bikes and i’m pretty sure they’re in their list of OK tyres, but I will double check!

    Edit: yeah they’re fine 💆♂️

  • Yeah, I’m confusing Michelin and Vittoria. The former seem to be akin to kryptonite for indoor wooden tracks.

    It’s to do with the rubber compound. Michelin use more of a certain ingredient (might be silica?) and it means the tyres last longer and run faster but at the expense of grip.
