- Aargh quick what fast tough rear 29er tyre
Order a supergravity rock razor, got the wrong tyre. Tried to find another one, can’t, they seem to have dried up. Minion SS exo not tough enough, butcher 29 2.3 grid not that good, rock razor snakeskin punctures for fun… What else should I be looking at?

Minion SS double down ?Posted 1 year agohuckersneckMember
I bought a Riddler in tough/fast configuration recently as I was looking to seemingly fulfill the same criteria as you, OP, but wasn’t prepared to pay for a DD Minion SS and SG Rock Razors only come in inappropriate-for-day-to-day-riding (for me) soft compounds. The Riddler was cheap. Beware however that the cornering knobbles on the Riddler are nowhere near as tall as pictured in the rendering that seemingly accompanies all sale listings. They’re about half that height and barely taller than the central tread. I don’t know whether or not this matters to you (might do if you’re looking for this type of tyre) or is even a problem in reality, as I haven’t ridden the tyre yet.

You could try and get hold of one of the new Specialized Blck Dmnds. Our daughter has been running them 2.6 front and 2.3 rear for a while and they are a lot better than the Grids.So far they have done Pila, La Thuile, Verbier and now into their third week in Whistler.Posted 1 year ago
Abigale may be going to the PMBA at Kirroughtree in between getting back from Whistler and going out to Ainsa. If she does you can compare them if you are about that weekend. I though she may want the weekend off, shes been on her bike trip since the 25th June, but thats kids for you.Posted 1 year ago
