Sorry, longish boring post about tyres.
I've been looking at new tyres over the last week, I thought I had got my head around it so went to the shop and bought some tyres... although I now think I got it wrong.
I have an Orange Five AM that I ride in the Peaks mostly and in the Alps occasionally... I know nothing about tyres and read that 2.35 Minion DHF up front, and 2.35 Highroller rear would be best. This is also what Orange now equip as standard.
Now, because I know absolutely nothing I have ended up with a Downhill 2Ply Minion 42a SuperTacky DHR, and a 2.35 folding Highroller (presumably single compound).
I've very clearly bought the wrong Minion... the highroller may be the one I'm after. After looking on the Maxxis website there is few different types.
I was looking for a 42a Minion on the front, and a 60a highroller on the rear.
I THINK what I actually want is
Front = 2.35 Minion DHF, with wire bead and supertacky compound (is that the 42a?)
Rear = 2.35 Foldable, single compound (is that the 60a?)
Can anyone point me in the right direction
