IS THERE A CONNECTION BETWEEN TIRES AND A WOBBLE?
The unpleasant wobble, also referred to as shimmy effect, usually occurs, when the natural frequencies of different bicycle components (such as frame, fork, tires…) overlap and mutually reinforce each other. In most cases it only occurs in a certain speed range.
WHY DO SOME TIRES LEAVE DISCOLORATIONS ON PLASTIC FLOOR COVERINGS?
Some rubber compounds have a strong predisposition to discolor their surrounding area. A long-term, persistent contact with other rubber or plastic materials will make certain color components migrate into the contact material.
DOES IT MAKE ANY SENSE TO DEFLATE TIRES FOR TRANSPORT BY AIR?
This regulation is unfortunately required insistently at many airports. From our point of view it makes little sense.
