Pilot Road 4 tires first ride thoughts
Just got a set of the Pilot Road 4 tires installed this afternoon and rode bike home 20 miles on the interstate. First impression is: feels like I'm driving on that road surface of asphalt with the crushed rock in it. Kind of like a vibration feeling, but not a shaking of handlebars feeling. Hard to explain, but a weird feeling that I called the bike shop up and asked a few questions. It's just not "smooth" like the Continental tires that got pulled off.
Hoping that the tires wear in a little and they ride smooth. Not bad enough for me to pull them off, but it has a very unique feel to them that isn't the light gliding feeling.
Just my quick thoughts, never had a new bike tire feel like this. Thought it wasn't balanced correctly, but tech swears he dialed it in perfectly (four weight squares on front, zero on back since it balanced perfectly).
So, we shall see over the next few days.
Lighten up, Francis. If you can't take some sarcasm, an Internet forum is the last place you should be.
