For you Dyfi first-timers – tyres suitable for slatey ridged rock and [irony]don’t believe anyone who tells you the first fireroad does not involve a climb[/irony]. Great event (just remember, when you get to the end there’s still a while to go back to town…). racing_ralph – it’ll be worth the journey 🙂Posted 9 years ago
I suspect this will be full very very quickly, might even beat the 6 days it took to fill up last year.
Great event, but don’t use lightweight tyres as the slate descents will shred them, I ended up with 3 nutrigrain bars jammed between the inner tube and my tyre one year in order to cover up all the sidewall cuts, it was a bit weird seeing red jam oozing out of my tyre at the end though.Posted 9 years agoshinsplintsMember
:DLOL @ richc – will have to remember that one….
Surely its only a matter of time until we see a “Which Tyres For The Dyfi” Thread ? Personally,I will be riding on the ones that are always on my bike as
A) I am too lazy to change them
B) They are the tyres that I have ridden all around there on before
Might run some DH tubes though so I don’t have to faff with punctures !!! Well,it’s my theory anyhoo.Posted 9 years ago
Yeah – seems a bit odd to reduced numbers. Although I know last time I entered there a few more than the “official” limit. Good value at £20 too I thought.
Whytetrash – I assume your id is significant? I’m really looking forward to taking the E-120 down those rocky descents (on a 2000 Mount Vision last time I did it 🙂Posted 9 years agoScienceofficerMember
I did the dyfi last year. The downs were good, but, as with all enduros, the endless fire-road ascents got me down. Good vibe though, and cheerleaders at the top of the first climb was very pleasing. 😀
For variety of riding, the Blackmill Rat-run enduro was a better mix and probably harder too.Posted 9 years ago
