    I had an “interesting” ride yesterday when it felt like my El Mariachi kept trying to throw me off. I’ve not yet worked out what the reason was but this was the first ride since I fixed a puncture in the rear (I’m using tubes) and I’ve noticed that the tyre is fitted with the Rotation arrow the wrong way round. Now, there’s a fair chance it was like this before the puncture (and yesterdays handling antics) but I was wondering if other folk had tried them both ways.


    More than likely not that.

    What sort of throwing off? Side-ee-ways or out the front door type?

    p.s. HNY btw.

    Sideways squirming action. Felt like the bars were only loosely connected to the bike 🙂 Gonna look at axles, headset, spoke tension etc too.

    I’ve been running ardents on the back the wrong way around for 2 years no issues here, prefer them this way
