- Am I on the right track, here? (29er tyre thread – sorry, sorry, sorry)
Been running Purgatory F & R for a while on a rigid 29er, surprisingly capable all rounders. Not a mud tyre but they cope with it. Grip pretty well everywhere else. Thinking of a Butcher up front (probably overkill) and a Storm out back for winter traction. All of the Specialized 29er tyres are pretty sorted and well priced. As above get the Control option not the S-works. S-works sidewalls are made of paper. There is also a Grid option on some tyres, tougher sidewalls than both S-works and Control.Posted 4 years agoskindogMember
I just bought an awesome Maxxis Minion DHF 2.5″ Tubeless ready tyre and ran it for half a day around a muddy Glentress. It stuck to everything like glue and i was totally inspired with confidnece.
the downside is that the 29″ wheels flexed so much that it was rubbing 80% of the time against the fork bridge RS (XC32s).
If anyone has nice stiff wheels then this would be the perfect winter/mud tyre.
Happy to consider any offers to offset the £50 I spent on it!Posted 4 years ago
