- Commuter/CX tyres that play well with 29er Crests?
Any suggestions? Puncture proof, slick-ish tyres that’ll cope with gravel/towpath use, and will go onto crests (tubeless a bonus).
Have Conti wire CX Speed on there at the monent. but they’re anightmare to fit and een when on, the bead doesn’t always slide into place properly, so they look wobbly.Posted 4 years agoTurnerGuyMember
Any wire tyre is likely to be a problem…
I have Maxxis Raze on Stans Iron Cross and they went on OK but weren’t super tight, so I guess that they may well go on the Crests OK. Some of the other tubeless ready CX tyres are tight on the Iron Crosses, so would be a nightmare on the crests.
The Raze had a central ridge as well, which means using on the road might be better as you are not hitting the nobs.Posted 4 years agobirdageMember
Got some Landcruisers on TN719s. Easy to get on, great grip off road and not bad speed on road. No punctures yet and cheap!!
They are a tad heavy and felt weird at first till they bedded in (or I got used to them)but I’ve tried lots of tyres on tracks round the South Downs and for the riding I do these are by far the best I’ve used.Posted 4 years ago
