    Would like a new tire option? Cast your vote to Shinko

    I sent an email to Shinko today requesting their 700 series tire made available in TW sizes. I feel it would fill the gap between their 428 series and the stockers from Bridgestone. More aggressive tread but still friendlier than knobbies. So I've included all known tires (matching front/rear) available for the TW, please cast your vote, and then at the end of the calender week I want to send Shinko the results in hopes of them expanding their 700 series.

    Shinko 428 Series

    Bridgestone TW34
    Bridgestone TW31

    Bridgestone TW203
    Bridgestone TW204

    Shinko 700 Series
    1987 TW200
    Cycleracks Rear Rack, Tinman Tim's Side Racks [THANKS!], Action Packer Rear Trunk, Texsport waterproof luggage, 20w LED Spot Beam headlight, LED Bulbs for Rear Brake Light and Dash/Speedo, 12v marine auxiliary port, Coleman Seat Pad, Alloy Boltz kit.

    I'd prefer a version of their "Goldenboy" for the rear, I'd buy one in a heartbeat.....

    A 700 rear would be interesting.

    The 700 series would be closest to matching the 241. Some reason I am hung up on the trials type tires.

    I'd be interested, but my tires are still essentially new, so it'd be a while.

    I have a Shinko with 2-300 miles on it. It's for sale. Hated it in the loose downhills off road. Love my MT43 on those same downhills.

    If Shinko is going to make a new tire in the 180/80-14 size, I would prefer something quite a bit more aggressive than the 700 series. Maybe something between a TW34, and an atv tire.

    Though not a "Poll Choice", my vote would be with howardgene63. ATV tire tread with the ease of mounting like a TW34. Granted, most of my riding is off-pavement so the 700 series not aggressive enough for me, but would be a good dual-sport tire.
