Cheers Mike – figured it was going to go that way – wanted a second opinion as these bikes can be a little bit “odd” (in so many respects).
These are some of the roads I’ll be headed for – so I might as well put a knobbly on the front.
Figuring to go for the Metzeler Enduro 3 Sahara. Seems like a good all-rounder. The fronts are a bit weak, but as the size dictates that I’ll be going for a rear on the front (reverse the rotation), it should be a lot tougher.
Standard size for the front is 130 80 18 - nearest size I can get for the Metzeler is 140 80 18 - is this going to be OK ?
Thanks for your help – it’s appreciated ………
