- more tyres – which 26in tyre for the road
I need some new tyres on my road commuter Giant XTC. In the past I’ve used Specialized Nimbus 26×1.5 and the latest pair to wear out are Panaracer Rimbo 26×1.25. I had a quick look at Swchalbe Duranos but they seem a bit heavy, I’m looking to keep weight down. Is there anything other than another pair of Rimbos that I should consider?Posted 4 years agoSimon ESubscriber
Same thoughts on City Jet as jamiep except I had 6 or 7 deflations in ~10,000 miles, which I guess isn’t too bad (gone through 2 pairs and part-worn a third in that time). Each time a nail or small shard of glass got through the protection layer. It appears to be a bit on the lean side compared to the Marathon tyres.
