    Tired mousses

    Post by shocker on Sun Apr 30, 2017 7:44 pm

    I've got a front and rear mousse here that are a bit tired - rather than completly knackered and falling to bits   Very Happy

    Is there any use for them eg. stick 'em in a smaller tyre or do people just chuck them away??

    Got a desert mousse in the front (again comp 6) which is a bigger mousse holding pretty good at the mo think that may fit a smaller tyre when that plays up mind too!

    Just checked the Michelin site and all this matching the right tyres with the right mousses is all looking a bit of an expensive faff for the amount of riding I do these days  

    Might be time to dig out the old levers and a spare tube Shocked
