I just got new tyres on the bike and i have read and was told by the people that fitted the tyres that it takes about 100 k to get the mould release stuff off the tyre and take it easy until then! I didn't think much about this except "I gotta take it easy!". The question was "how easy???". I was riding it back and thought the tyres felt real good. The road is wet and greasy in places which made me a bit more cautious. Then I wondered "how" the release stuff gets taken off the sides of the tyre...the parts that don't normally touch the ground in city riding? I'm talking about the tread area that doesn't normally touch the road surface unless you lean the bike way over in a fast corner? So then I thought..."thats a bit crazy...you gotta lean the bike right over in fast corner and you dunno if it's gunna grip because the release compound stuff is on it!". So what's the answer to this one???
