The sprint is my first real bike . I bought it secondhand after it had been dropped a few times by its previous owner.

I liked the bike but I really was a little disappointed by various aspects of it. The loose clutch/acceleration and the scary way the back end shimmered in curves.

I figured I would try new tires when I got my bike serviced. So on went Metzeler Z6s. They tightened up the clutch and adjusted the throttle and chain.

The difference was immediate and incredible. The bike is surefooted and intoxicating. Anyway the $600 I spent on the tires and service don't hurt so much :)

Just had the same things done yesterday after 24K including changing sprockets, throttle cable and levers. The bike rides like new!
