Doesn't junking all the linked brake bollocks save a fair bit of weight as well?
It certainly feels like it, its huge and so irrelevant, its in a corner of the garage an I have just checked its weight, almost 7kg with all the bolts etc. But it certainly seemed a lot more.

Must admit I've never taken off all the linked brake stuff before so yes maybe it will.
I hate it when people ask if you have a bathroom, I want to say "No we pee in the garden"

The Avon 3DXM is a great tyre, work well on this bike. Wear well and give all the grip you'll need and priced well.
