Find a review, Maxxis Beaver 29, WTB Moto 1.9/29, how to search the back issues?
Hi tyre lovers
It’s mud time here on the South Downs. Getting up the climbs is becoming a walking event. My Spesh Purgatory fnt and new style Ground Control rear are fab tyres but its just too slimy now.
I’ve tried a Purgatory 23 rear and Bonti Big Earl Wet TLR ARC 235 front on the 26bike but you still can’t get up some parts, well, I can’t.
ST Issue 77 has a nicely comprehensive 29er tyre test but comes at slightly the wrong time for me as there are no muds. They do mention testing the above two recently though. Id like to read that.Posted 5 years ago
Now, as a Digi subscriber you’d think I’d be able to search the back issues but I’m not managing to find a way to do that. The missus’ impression of my sanity isn’t helped by my occasional searches through great piles of the back issues I usually manage to keep hidden. There has to be a better way?
So, anyone got a bright idea on how to search the mag archive for an old test?
29er tyres for Stanmer in Winter? Big Dog fans? It’s pretty slimy in there now with a decorative cover of sloppy leaves, fun to ride but a little too much walking involved with those tyres 🙂
You beat me to the post. I found the obvious WTB mud tyre review (as it’s in the review section) but I’ve tried searching the web page and on my kindle to no avail for the Maxxis Beaver review mentioned; so I can only assume they were not fully reviewed but merely shown in the Fresh Goods Friday posts?
I think the next step is just to ask the editorial team at STW on specifically where these reside in the back issues?

Thanks for the tips, very useful, as the Ground Control is so super slidey on the back and I find the MudX a bit low volume – I’ll check out the beaver for the rear I think. I’m managing with the Purgatory on the front but I guess the beaver might overshadow it, we’ll see.
It would have been nice to see the Beaver review they mentioned in the latest Singletrack mag 29er tyre test.
I see all that PR about digital subscribers getting access to all the 1777 product tests and 308 bike tests reviews, but without a back issues index or search facility it’s hard going to fine anything.
