Sava MC11's

Any of you guys running sava mc11's? Im sure they arent as good as Gazelles, but are they still pretty good? Any problems with them?

Thanks

Re: Sava MC11's

They're fine. Not nearly as beef or rigid as gazelles. Semi slick with good clearance.

Re: Sava MC11's

better than gazelles, imo

Re: Sava MC11's

ooh, really dean? i think they look cooler. but i just didnt know if they if they gripped as well or were as durable as gazelles.

BTW, Dean, these are going onto the minimagnum! oooh yeah.

They're great when crossing bridges that are grated and in the rain.

Re: Sava MC11's

they are fine tires.

but they dont hold a candle to gazelles.

depends on what you want from a tire.

Re: Sava MC11's

you've had problems with them fuckin shrearing to pieces or something?

Re: Sava MC11's

well, peter, i want a tire that grips well in turns and can handle speeds of around 60 mph.

Re: Sava MC11's

I think they're rated to handle 62mph.

From what I understand, sava's if you take your ped out on nice days .. meaning no rain, no off roading.

Gazelles for all-around weather and terrain factor.

Some swear they grip better than savas but some also say they grip the same.

Recommend 125% Super traction in the corners and smooth as glass in the straights.

Re: Sava MC11's

Sounds like they'll work good for me. I guess i'll get a pair tomorrow.

Inflate on the high side. Nothing wrong with Savas.

Re: Sava MC11's

gazelles are rad, just hard to put on and heavy. i ride my sava mc11s year round in seattle. that = lots of rain riding. never had a problem!

Re: Sava MC11's

sweet. plus i think semi slicks will look pretty sick. cant wait til i get em!

Re: Sava MC11's

listen to dean. kthxbye

Re: Sava MC11's

o hai tim.

Re: Sava MC11's

I have sava's on some of my bikes and IRC's as well as gazelles. I like all 3. Sava's for semi slicks are good in the rain in my opionion. Gazelles are too. In the end ,Gazelle's are a great tire in all circumstatnces, but shit man, id rather put a sava on any day.

I think alot of sava bad press got generated by a bunch of people dumping some old ones on ebay and the like. A new set of sava's is one of the first things id rec. for anyone with a bike looking to upgrade for rideabliity. Easy on, great tires.

Ive put a lot of miles on a set in a couple of years..and have been impressed.

Its all what ya want.

Jon gets it, much <3

Thanks Andrew. Yeah, im ordering up a set of these tomorrow. Unfortunately, im gonna have to order from you-know-where.

Re: Sava MC11's

BTW, where can i get tubes for these? Im not paying MS 10 bucks per tube...

I wouldn't get the Sava's. Call up 77 and get some of their rad Hutchinson's. They are like 2.5's and almost like the michelin m29's (which are the best moped tire). Sava's are decent, but the compound is soft and they wear a bit too quick. They do look good on a maxi though.

Sava's can suck my butt. I ran a set for a while and within the first few months I started to get cracks and stuff in the tire. I purchased mine new from 77's when they were based out of KZOO. If I were you I would order a nice set of IRC's from Quarterkick. They have great shipping and prices. Tubes are like $5 each there.

Re: Sava MC11's

maybe the cracked ones are the old ones that were sitting around.

77 previously did not stock sava's , they outsourced em and had em drop shipped to you. They never saw the tires. So it would not be thier fault nor would they know if you got a crappy old set. I know they had problems with distributors.

MWH for good or for bad has sava's in sets with tubes, and every time ive ordered them , they have quickly sent me new tires and tubes for a decent price.

A search for moped tires under ebay brings up some too.

try denniskirk.com for irc's or quarterkick like others say if you want to try the irc's. I like them alot too.

I worked for '77 when i bought the tires, I know for a fact that they were new. For roughly the same cost I feel that you can get far superior tires.
