Using a Fat Albert on the front and an Albert on the rear.
Good combination of tyres. The Fat Albert has a wide profile and offers plenty of grip – but still rolls well. Took a little time to sort out a pressure though. I pump the Fat Albert up to 32 psi on the front.
Haven’t had it long enough to see what its durability is like yet – but looks promising .Posted 8 years agoreggiegasketMember
I run a snakeskin FA on the front, and a Maxxis Advantage on the rear (456 with Pikes). I’ve run them in the Alps twice and they’ve been fantastic. No problems, good grip, last well.
Bit burly for UK, although they do well in the Lakes. A reasonable balance of grip without too much weight.
Wife runs an Alberts on the front, and it suits her well.
Got them from bike24 in Germany.Posted 8 years ago
Just back from the first ride with these on.
Rolls well on tarmac.
Outstanding grip especially on off camber loose stuff unlike the panaracer rampages which used to break away far too easily.
Knobs look far enough apart for when it gets wet, cant really comment on that yet.
Snakeskin so I should see an end to pinch flats.
So they are tough, roll well, not too heavy and very grippy, cant find anything not to like about them really, well maybe the price.Posted 8 years ago
Plenty of clearance at the moment but its fairly dry round where I live, cant see it having any issues at the back and if its that clarted up to clog up at the front then I dont think I’d want to be pedaling anyway.
Fair enough on the snakeskin stuff, I was running a 2.25 racing ralph on the back but these feel a lot stiffer.Posted 8 years ago
