sorry, but which are the best winter tyres
I’ve left the small block 8 2.35″ on the back as long as I could and I have a Rubber queen 2.2″ on the front. I ride old and new Dalby the moors and the odd trip to the peaks. Last year I had Mud X on the back and a NN on the front. The mud X was great but just a bit thin for the Chameleon.Posted 7 years agocraig1975Member
Ive been running Minions this last couple of years… decided to try the Swampthings just for a change, seeing as 90% of the trails are under mud just now.. at first I couldn’t believe the difference they make.. especially on the slippy climbs..
out of curiosity i put the minions back on today just to see if id notice any difference.. same trails.. mud..mud roots and more mud LOL.. didn’t notice a hole lot of a difference between them on the front, but the swamthings winning out though, but not enough to make the change over.. on the rear was a different story… trying to get traction with the minions on steep wet deep muddy sections where a no no.. the swampthings defo. do what they say on the tin…
Cutting through deep mud the Swampthing come into there own.. but they do tare up the trailsPosted 7 years agomissingfrontallobeMember
I’ve ordered some Spesh Storm controls from Hargroves cycles, will see if they are as good as described. First time ever I’ve fallen for this mud/summer tyre hype for two reasons really, the mud at the Ruthin round of the CRC mountain marathon, and an off in the local woods last week where the back tyre went out under me.Posted 7 years agohainmanMember
