    I don't why but when I first read this, my brain read it as "the middle ages"



    Think I need a drink.

    Just received a new tyre dated 26/13. Just over 4years old. I don't do big mileage and the current worn one has been on the bike close to 3years. What say you lot?

    Depends where you got it from. My initial reaction would be not to accept it but if you bought it online you need to check the t&c and see if they say anything about tyre age.
    I have used mytyres.co.uk in the past without problem but I still can’t figure out how tyres can be shipped from Germany and still be cheaper than buying in the UK. Older stock clearance would be one way.

    Came from a well respected local bike shop. I knew it was old stock on clearance offer as I've bought a few before. Just didn't expect it to be over 4years old. Everything previously was always just under 2years.
    It's a Bridgestone T30R 150/70/17 got for €80 delivered.

    If it was me, I would return it nicely, and ask them to get you a replacement with a later date code.

    I recently had the same problem, and the supplier changed without question. Got a xx17 date code. Happy customer.
