Just had to change the front tyre again. The TKC-80 I fitted at 41958km had worn oddly due to loosing a bit of pressure on a ride. Replacement this time is a Shinko SR244, mainly due to budget constraints. It seems pretty good for $100 fitted and balanced.

Mileage now is 52437 so this TKC had done 10,579km and would otherwise have had a fair bit of life in it yet. It’s the 2nd one in a row I’ve had this issue with. In some places the worn knobs were down to the carcass.
