Difference between GT & GT - a
« on: July 04, 2017, 12:32:29 am »
Big sale on angel gt (not gt-a) for $99.   Ride mostly solo. Will the tire hold up on C14?

The "A"-spec has a (much) stiffer sidewall.  Either will work well on the C14 but the "A"-spec will likely hold up better especially if you ride heavily loaded often at the cost of a harsher ride.

Yes! Good price.  I have the "A Spec" but I always ride solo so it might be overkill on my part...  The front tire they have on sale is not the size for the C-14.

Well Jorge,
I go through them pretty quickly so for that price how could I refuse?

I'm trying to figure out if it's 50 or 55? Doesn't say anything on the site.

Me too. But at 99$ I'll take it (2), anyway!

How long before tires start to go bad?  I know I want max grip as well as this beast does not like to stay planted in the curves.

I have found that the C14 handles seriously better with the 55 spec rear tire and the syspension tuned for your payload. Michelin PR4's for me. Best wet grip of all.
