Bargain tyres on eBay?

So I managed to slice my front tyre on some broken glass this morning. No big deal, shit happens. It’s been several months since I last needed tyres, so before heading off to my LBS I decided to check out the prices for GP4000s on ebay. Woah. That was fun.

I know there are plenty of newbies coming into cycling all the time who may not realise the market rates yet…and of course just because you list something on ebay doesn ‘t mean you’ll sell it…but check out these bargains. I didn’t read the fine print, but maybe they also come with a free set of wheels????

  1. I get about 6 months out of a rear Michelin Pro4 service course. I use a 25mm rear and 23mm front. Usually under $40 from overseas. Makes me wonder how the local market can justify charging more than double.
