finally got to take a ride on my new Dunlop Q3's yesterday. actually went out 3 times. couldn't stay off of it. so much better. lots more fun. I had Pirelli mt60' s. bike feels completely different now. stays planted in turns way better, quieter, smoother. and it even seems like its a lot faster. I still have the Pirelli's mounted on wheels if I find place to ride where that kind of tire would work better. these tires are somewhat taller than the Pirelli's so I im using the 46 tooth sprocket that came with the wheel when I bought it.. was using a 45 tooth with the Pirelli's.
