Every racing cyclist wants faster, grippier, and more puncture resistant tyres.

It’s called social proofing. It’s also called word of mouth (well word of words really) and reputation.

This image, is created in part by people telling other people about their experiences and opinions about the business, and has become increasingly done online.
