Default BST rims installed with Michelin Pures

Had the BST carbon fiber wheels installed, and the michelin pure tires for maximum weight savings. just rode it home from the shop (5 min), so I haven't had much chance to see, but it's at least -14 lbs.

Is this your first run on the Pures? Just wanted to see what your thoughts were on them if not. Trying to decide whether to run them or not.

yes, first run on the pures. they are super sticky. the tech took it for a short run, and everything was sticking to the tire.


I'll let you know my thoughts. had the Q2's on the OEM rims.

and I could tell, just on the short ride home, that the turn in response is much quicker. I'll have to adjust the damping, just a little pressure left/right and it's turning...

Very nice. You didn't lower the bike? That first pic looks lower, probably the angle. Congrats on the BST's
