Bit of a surprise this afternoon when I was cleaning my bike (first time since Christmas). I knew that my rear tyre was down to the wear marks and had been asking around for prices on a set of Michelin Pilot Road 2s as I’ve heard good things about them. I’ve had BT020, BT021 and BT023 up to now.
The rear brake light switch on a Sprint 955 is “protected” by a rubber cover that sits right next to the rider’s right heel. After a while, constant movement of the rider’s boot destroys the rubber cover – check next time you see a 955 – there won’t be many that aren’t trashed!
I had seen some bikes fitted with what looked like a carbon heel guard or protector but have failed to track down where these came from.
