" Bought one of these in 49T to replace the 53 on my 2010 Athena ultra torque cranks. I was unsure if the fit and shifting would be any good but was pleasantly surprised when everything fitted together and shifted well. Looks good too. "
Pros: Attractive, Good Fit, Great Value, High Quality

" Got The dual compound black and grey versions of these tyres about three weeks ago for my fixie. they look the goods and have a great feel while skidding but wear VERY easily. The middle band which I presume is the harder compound has already worn thru after about 150 kms with a moderate amount of skidding leaving the softer compound underneath exposed, so i can't see these lasting much longer. "
Pros: Attractive, Good Fit
Cons: Poor Quality, Wears Out Easily

Comparison of tyres

Hi What are the differences between these two tyres apart from price?

Schwalbe Durano Plus Performance Road Tyre

AND

Schwalbe Ultremo DD Evolution Black Folding Road Tyre
Durano plus is much heavier with harder compound and way better puncture protection. The Ultremo DD is much more like a race tyre , lightweight, grippy with less puncture protection.

i have a nexus hub with a 20t socket and feel its a gear too low. Which socket should i change it with, 18,17 or 16.

If you only think its one gear too low I would go for the 18T as it is an overall change of 10%. The 16T would probably be too small and would change things by 20%.
