    If you live in a decently temperate climate. I wouldn't be adverse to running the 15-40 in the Spyder. It might be more readily available. It would definitely outlast the 5/40 version. I've got some...

    Here is the information I have. Can't verify it but it sounds plausable.

    The original Kenda's for the Spyder are less than optimal (being kind). BRP had a patent on them (and probably a 'No...
