" castelli stuff is horrendously expensive, theres no escaping that, but it all works so well. iv had this jacket a couple of months now and never felt like iv had to wear anything more than a sleeveless wicking base layer under it, and its been cold here! it keeps you dry, warm, its really comfortable and it looks great! Its well worth the money and feels like its built to last. "
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit

Schwalbe Durano Plus Performance Folding Road Tyre 2014
Maximum puncture protection for race machines!
 

How do you fit folding tyres?

I find it very difficult to get the tyre on to the wheel - do I need to soften the tyre first.
i found it very hard too, try putting some fairy liquid on the edge of the rim and work it up as far as you can with your thumbs. I managed to get one on by my self with just my hands, but struggled so much with the other i had to get someone to pop the last bit on with a tyre lever whilst i held the tyre in place. hope that helps
