- 2.6 Tyres vs Plus?
New bike ordered, it will take a 650b plus but the cost of new wheels cassette etc…slightly putting me off, I was going to run a 2.8 plus.
Looking online I can get the bonty xr4 in a 2.6 and technically I have clearance in the frame, the bigger up the range stumpys come with 2.6 while mine comes in 2.3 ground controls.
Will I notice th difference between plus and just a little less? Can I run them at lower pressures? Anyone else run 2.6? Will I get the traction I’ve been seeing on my plus bike?Posted 7 months agoandreasrhoenMember
Run 2.6 Magic Mary addix soft front and rear … on a PLUS bike.
2.8 or 3.0 inch rubber I don’t like too much.
I use 35 mm rims (FunWorks from actionsports.de) and run the 2.6 inch tyres around 19 psi. Downhill, over rough stuff: incredible!
That’s my fun bike now.
On long and fast mtb tours without technical demanding stuff I take my 2.3 inch tyre bike… – the 2.6 Magic Marys are grip monsters – but they have drag as well…
2.6 tyre development: tons and tons of new great tyres in this size!Posted 7 months agodavosaurusrexSubscriber
Put a 2.8 exo DHR on the back on my ebike and found it too vague, also casing not strong enough but both might be related to the weight of the bike.
Got a 2.6 ebike rated Magic Mary on the front now and a 2.5 DHF DoubleDown on the back which is much better. Wouldn’t go bigger than the MM in futurePosted 7 months ago
