Hi all,
A query to the masses please re Mavic Aksion tyres, in particular the side walls. I've noticed the last couple of times as I've washed my new bike, (which is less than 2 months old), that there are what I can only describe as occational threads of cotton hanging around some parts of the tyre wall? The tyres are never allowed to run low or overpressured av 85 - 120psi.
Is this treading normal for Mavic tyres? or is it indicative of wall failure? As said these tyres are new, with about 1,000 miles of road normal road use.

Any ideas please?
 
nothing to worry about, just snip them off or something. It is not a sign of impending failure....
