    Gives me something to eat my lunch to in the office, kind aliked it when it was the orignal crew though.

    Going to stick with my Michelin, better car tyres is enough for me to keep brand loyalty.

    That whole video may as well been written by Continental's marketing team. It was basically an advert.

    I've got 4000s on my front wheel and GP 4 Seasons on my rear. Think I've had one puncture with them and that was on the front the other day, but the road conditions were really poor with all manner of crap on the roads...plus it was dark.

    Besides that, the tyres have been great and I've ridden with plenty of confidence in them. That said, if I tried something else and had the same experience, I'd be just as happy.

    Had some Ultra Sports which seemed to be puncture magnets, but they are quite a bit cheaper.

    Great video Muffin, poor James.

    Raced at Castle Coombe and know that corner, been a few offs when the bunch goes through at speed. I made it through OK as I was off the back.

    Cool video... dunno why, but I love the slo-mo sequences mixed with Simon chatting at normal speed. But I'm easily pleased.

    More than 25% of the cost of a Michelin PS2 for my car, and there is a lot more rubber in that!
