    Have sorted it.
    Rode on it all day wobbly, then gave it another 70 psi!
    Just wish i hadn't bothered even buying it, and actually looking forward to it wearing out so i can justify binning it Rolling Eyes

    I got more grip with an almost bald 'proper' enduro tyre - maybe they just don't suit a CRF 230??

    Ps will try your tip in future if necessary though

    I just fitted a Mitas C02 rear and the bead was a little devlish on that. I bought some tyre paste in a 5 litre tub from these guys in Cwmbran.
