yes to be unhelpful, quite capable of both.
i tried a buzzard 1st but wasn’t blown away, but i think its was a nice frame held back by truely dreadful Mazza forks (44’s shockingly bad)
gone for a FF29 mythink is more of a all day mile muncher. But eastridge is my back garden so it will see some tight rocky ST.
looking to build up a 29er hard tail, pretty much sourced everything except tyres.Posted 4 years ago
I don’t want to spend lots just yet as i don’t really know what will work for me.
i’m leaning towards maybe a X king on the back, not sure about the front, i’ve tried MK2’s on a 29er and although grippy i thought the back offer no notice that it was about to breakaway,- grip grip grip – nothing.
Also looked at N/nics, spesh captains and purgatorys
where should i start? any good deals out there (one LBS point straight at some £58 maxxis whf when asked for cheap 29er tyres, which i took to mean leave our shop and never come back.)acehtnMember
Future Geax curious here.
Proper mucking about on mountains or DH racing, been using Hans Dampf, square unramped knobs so bit draggy on xc.
XC, WTB Bronsons, nice tight center knobs, low profile, roll nice, large side knobs for off camber cheeky lines and cornering, nice tyres and coped better than expected in mud.
For feeling a bit a racey, Conti CX race 700c 35mm, quite a surprise in all weathers. Ran around 55-60 psi, more grip than expected, when they wear out will most likely get the larger 42-45mm version. Roll well, good tarmac manners, cheap but taken some abuse 🙂
Might try the Conti xc 29er race tyres instead, but liking the CX tyres.Posted 4 years ago
