Tannus Tyres....not bad at all!

Discussion in 'Folding Bikes' started by Bill, 10 Jan 2018.

  1. Update: I went out for a ride with a club I ride with sometimes on Sunday, on my Triban 520 with its Tannus tyres. I spent ages waiting for people to repair various punctures, on their bikes and it was freezing cold and windy. Nothing fell off, or broke on my bike either:okay:.

    Is it true that Tannus users are shoots who won't help other riders with punctures because they think everyone else should suffer solid tyres? ;)

    Off-topic; Reminds me of the time I packed all my ultralight kit for WOMAD, and my pals with their 5 man tent, double sleeping bags and all the jazz wanted me to help them... on a hot day. I can't see how that's me being rude...

    It's not. But moaning afterwards about how long it took them would be...

    Well, 'Roadkill' (above) sums it up!...The people who wont change to anything new and a advance over the old stuff learn the hard way. My rear tyre feels just like the Marathon Plus on the front, and I am not....'suffering'... as a result. Tannus tyres suit me and my Brompton so that's the main thing....

  6. I ran into the guys from East London, who have the bike shop that specialises in the Tannus tyres, at the London bike show, they were doing a show special on the new 25mm 700c Tannus tyres, it would have been rude not to, so I got another couple. I’ve just got to decide which bike to put them on now.

    :laugh: "the old stuff" :laugh: I agree that people who won't change to the new stuff learn the hard way, but you might want to check which of solid and pneumatic tyres are older. One pretty much died out for good reasons.
