I just put my summer tyres on….
Have I cursed us all 😕
Well, its been pretty dry down south for a while now and the winter tyres have been on for 5months! Surrey Hills was lovely and dry yesterday (well a couple of puddles), I got all excited and blew the dust off the Crossmark and Fat Albert 😳Posted 4 years ago
I’m sorry all, let the backlash commence!
Its just a ball ache with big mud tyres to ride 7miles on road to my local trails before they are of any use. Not so bad on my HT with 2.0 mudx, but my Datura on FS is a real drag. Its so nice to get a fast rolling rear back on.Posted 4 years ago
Fk it, if it turns grim again, I’ll just use the HTvan cough coughMember
I now set up tyres for year round, a good knobbly upfront that isn’t too sketchy on road or in mud, something a tad softer.. and something squarer and less frition e.g. a Larsen or similar (Kenda SMB8, Prowler XT/SS, etc) in the rear.. 2.3 knobbly up front, fat 2.25/2.3 and fast XC in the rear.
When I was Johnny X Country I never went bigger than a 1.95. Could never run those now. Far too uncomfortable.Posted 4 years ago
