Re: Wide tyre questions

For what it’s worth. Sorted the above setup with K61’s front and back. 130/70-11 rear and 110/70-11 front.

I have a VBB 150 (Douglas Sportique) that I was given 25-odd years ago... stuck it in my old man's barn and finally pulled it out to do it up. Proper self-inflicted barn-f...
