    Has anybody tried these? Specifically the Clinchers, my understanding is that they work on all clincher wheels right? Are there really any benifits? Pros? Cons? What do you guys think.

    Bicycling vs. motorcycling

    I ride a KX125 so it’s just for fun but I was thinking about selling it too. I decided not to, and put most my new Cannondale R1000 on a credit card.
