- Perfect tyre for coast to coat
The Big Apples work find offroad in the dry for non techie stuff if you run them at a lower pressure.
Another option would be Conti Race Kings perhaps…not sure how they are in 26″ flavour, but on my 29er they are surprisingly fast rolling on the road for such a huge tyre,Posted 4 years agopaul4stonesSubscriberuser-removedMember
You will need offroad capable tyres for the last good bit of the C2C – Rookhope to Consett (it’s all downhill from there and not in a good way).
You climb out of the village on a very steep, deeply rutted track to climb over the moors. I was there last week and they’ve ‘improved’ the moorland track by dumping several hundred tons of quarry waste onto it. Lots of tennis ball sized, sharp, angular stones.
I’d go with non-slicks, no doubt.
EDIT: not the last good bit, but the last good views.Posted 4 years ago
