    The Chronicles on my Orbea Loki are showing their age. They’re fast rolling & the perfect tyre for the use this bike gets. Chronicles are discontinued so I’m looking for an alternative. Something similar, fast rolling with a shallow tread.

    Recommendations please.

    TIA Dave.

    I’ve replaced Chronicles on my 29+ singlespeed with Teravail Coronado’s. Only 2.8 but very fast rolling and a great alternative. Don’t feel like the loss of width is a problem either, still plenty of volume.

    +1 for the Coronado’s, they work really well and seem to be good alternative

    Aye, I had a look but the postage is 16 quid. I’m Scottish, goes against the grain paying that for delivery :o)

    Coronado’s aren’t cheap I’m afraid. But don’t mind paying if they last and don’t make the bike crap.

    Minion dhf in 3.0.

    They’re great!

    Yeah Minions are epic for grip but somewhat fail the fast rolling test! I have them on the bike in winter but couldn’t face dragging them year round.

    Just sold a spare Chronicle I had to Wombat of this parish. Never really got on with them myself, much prefer a WTB Ranger.

    I went with Rekon 29×2.8 to replace my 3.0 Chronicles. Very pleased.

    Many thanks for all the great suggestions. Bombolonis ordered from ebay, 29 quid an end delivered. The Chronicles I liked a lot, bit lacking I outright grip but fast rolling which was a saviour on long days out.

    Cheers for the heads-up.
