What bike and bike bits should you buy?

I've been using Ultremos for years and not had the sidewall bulge/de-lamination issue myself, a mate's ZX bulged early last year though so I wouldn't guarantee they've sorted the manufacturing but I'd say it's happens a lot more rarely than you might think (as in the few with the issue post about it and the thousands without don't post about it).
I think older models were prone to failure but the ones I have used since back end of 2011 onwards have been perfect. Do cut easy but no massive sidewall ruptures as have been mentioned in the past. I think if people do still get them they are most likely old stock being palmed off. There is a slight difference in design with the coloured ones in last few years. If you get the ones with a white outline around the edges of the lettering they are later models and should be more reliable. I have not used the HD version much but the DD are outstanding tyres. Would continue to use them over anything else on the market.
