Hi all, following a rather damp ride today, I was after some advice on climbing wet rocks and roots. In a nutshell one of my wheels usually slips when I am climbing fairly steep stuff when its wet. The worst is when my back wheel just spins out after i have put in a burst of power and it really throws my weight off, sometime to the point where i feel like i almost go over the bars. Also front wheel slipping sideways on off-camber roots.
Of course picking a better line is not always an option…
This means often that i don't put in max effort over wet roots or rock clusters, as i expect to just slip.
I'm running Kenda Nevegals at around 30psi. (didn't check yesterday for exact numbers) Much lower and i get pinch punctures on the rock gardens on the way down.
Thanks in advance!
