No matter what type of bike product your buying, from the simple accessories through to the full setup of your custom built road bike, there are lots of important considerations that you should take into account, especially when you’re shopping online and unable to test the product first. This is especially true when you’re buying products like Tyres.

Our aim is simple, help you get the very best products for your budget. Whether that’s Maxxis Minion FBR Folding MTB Tyre or an alternative, we’ll do our best to find you unbiased, genuine customer reviews to help you make your decision.

Our first piece of advice is for you to spend some time really getting to know what it is you’re looking for. An important feature for one person might be totally pointless and irrelevant to you, so get a good idea of what you want and need from your Tyres. Note down this list of key features that your product must have, that way when you’re comparing alternatives you have a starting point to decide whether one product meets your needs or not.

Price is the next and probably one of the most important factors of a purchase, so it’s really worthwhile spending a bit of time analysing the price of Maxxis Minion FBR Folding MTB Tyre and seeing how it stacks up against those offered by different brands or even other alternatives from Maxxis.

The next stage we went on to, was to look at the price of products from the brand: Maxxis. The average price was £35.32 and we found that the price varies right from as little as £2.99 up to £81.99 with Maxxis products.

And finally we thought it would be good to give you an idea of Maxxis products that appear specifically in the Tyres category.
