How much will such a system add to the unsprung weight, I wonder.

It sounds good, but until we get more technical details is hard to imagine how they will be practical, I would worry about bulk, weight, and the shock from having a blowout to immediate re-inflation, it somehow evokes scenes of a major highside, should it happen in the rear tire. We will see, Pirelli has always been a favorite tire of mine and I hope they pull it off.

Pirelli-Metzeller also have developed the Modular Integrated Robotized System "MIRS" Which is poised to revolutionize tire manufacture as we know it right now.

They sure are at the forefront of tire research and development, and their efforts will benefit all of us riders, cheers to them!

For more details on MIRS, read Kevin Cameron's article in the July issue of Cycle World.

Must I point out the sheer coincidence of KPaul submitting a post about something that is "self-inflating?"

More like cold, brutal and unforgiving irony.

You should really get a free year's subscrition from Sean for that one.



Or maybe one of those EZ-Leakers.
