Heidenau K60 sizing

Post  Zoro on Wed Dec 11, 2013 3:36 am

Is anybody using the K60 rear tyre on their piggy?

Would you know if the 140 rear fits the bike?

Never used one , but 140 sounds like you might get little bit of chain rub  study

( i believe that it would fit but i might be wrong  scratch )

Just an FYI if anyone's looking at trying the K60, I can confirm that the 140 does fit.
I'm also trying out an HP4 Starcross on the front also, 90/100-21.
Haven't been for a spin yet but they do look good.

Dunno K60 but a 140 apparently fits.

Lol...I originally had issues trying to get them so went with a couple of Mitas CO2's on the rear since then.
Last week I went to a local tyre shop and found an abundance of the K60's, he tells me the 140 will fit so went with that.
I must say it hangs on nicely both tar and dirt, doubt I'll go back to a knobby after using the Heidenau.
Props to the HP4 Starcross on the front also...

Here's a tip, you can also step-up the width at the front a size.
In loose sand this will give you a lower flotation speed hence it 'climbs out' sooner, it is easier to ride.
This for those who dislike sand, if you like it no need to do this.

Yeah, sorry about that, I knew they made a 120/90-18 and I thought the 140 may have been 90 and "thought that won't fit in a fit"
I was a little confused Smile
