“Get ready to live”…you’re gonna LOVE those 6’s…complete Nirvana! Should bring you 10-12,000 miles with proper inflation!
I was thinking about your Diablo’s btw. Looks like they might have sat in a bad environment long-term, got severely under inflated and when re-inflated, didn’t hold the bead due to being warped…just an idea! Regardless, you’ve got the best tire in the world now. Run 42/42 or “get the mileage you deserve”.
…got another set sitting in the guest-room 🤣 for the 1200F since I’ll be grinding-out a couple sets on her over the season (couldn’t resist the Michelin rebate); plus a ten percent discount from the distributor last month (saved $100 bucks). Great investment!
I agree, no tire gives so much confidence as Michelin do.
Riding those feels like being at home. And I had over 20 bikes, more than 45yrs of active riding, yes.
As for Diablos, I can not explain what happened with the tire.
Bought 2nd hand with good tread.
Installed by my local bike shop, all looked good.
After 10min of riding (and putting some temperature in the tire) I experienced a bit of bumpiness on the left corners.
Came home and saw the lump.
The rest is history.
