  • Flipping hard to do as well .... you would think all the writing on the 'inside' would have been a giveaway, let along the tread.

    When I next buy a tyre and it has "INSIDE" and "OUTSIDE" printed on it, I'll remember this fine moment in cycling history.

    Vittoria made a double-sided road tyre a while back - it was smooth on one side and had a light tread on the other to cope with different road conditions - unsurprisingly, it didn't really catch on. Perhaps they should resurrect it for guys this this?
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    You have to be quite committed to sacrifice a pair of tyres for the sake of a joke...

    Seriously, if you were that thick you couldn't ride a bike, let alone put on tyres

    It's just a hill. Get over it.
