Re: Making the 190 to 180 switch today

I just switched this week and I'm happy with it. To be honest, the difference on the street is not that drastic...maybe slightly lighter steering. New tires always feel good so it's hard to tell how much is from the 180. The cost savings was nice.

Swapped mine about a year ago before we took a ride up in the mountains. Does make the bike feel lighter in the transitions. Price savings was also a nice bonus.

Re: Making the 190 to 180 switch today

I put a new set on my bike front and rear and rear to a 180 and I almost crashed in the city cuz how fast it turned and handled. It also could have been that my rear was a 'car' tire and the front cupped so freaking bad. But it made a diff.
