Avon storm ultra 2

I am heading from Holyhead via the a55 to the m6 and then down the m5
to Bristol on Monday. I badly need a new front avon storm ultra 2 to be fitted
along the route somewhere. Any ideas

Yep, thats exactly where I got it.They had one in stock as well. In and out in 20 minutes. Nice place and a good bunch of guys.
Bear, just noticed your Wrexham based. I spent last night there in the Wynnstay hotel, bored to tears and went for a few pints across the road to watch the match. If I had remembered that you were based there I would have gave you a call.

Re: Avon storm ultra 2

Hi Mark,

how much did they charge? I've been quoted £85 Inc Vat for the tyre, or ride bike in and they will pull the wheel, fit, balance and replace wheel for £96 inc Vat.
