- Tire combination??
We are running Specialized Butcher/Purgatory combination on all our bikes. Used for everything from Alps to Peak sludge. Using the Control versions and have never had a problem with a sidewall yet. Not bad on price and if you shop around there were some deals about on 26″ ones.Posted 4 years agojohnw1984Subscriber
I have Butcher/Purg combo on my stumpy. I find the sidewalls on the Control a little too soft, but I’m a heavy bugger!
If your lighter they will be fine. I’m thinking of buying the same tyres, but the Grid casing.
Thing is with tyres, everyone is going to recommend what worked for them. It may not be the same terrain, or same weight etc.Posted 4 years agomikewsmithMember
Suitable for all mtn stuff some downhill trail stuff and rocks???
Cheers guys I ended up getting a pair of pan xc pro 2.1 used them yrs ago thought I’d try em out again and at 20quid each end it’s not a prob if I put em on the hardtail if they aren’t up to it.

On One have (or had, anyway) 26″ Geax tyres really cheap. £5.99 for a Goma and the same for a Sagauro I think. The Goma is supposedly somewhere between a Rubber Queen and Mountain King (“Enduro specific”, apparently) and the Sagauro is more XC. I bought 2 of each to mix and match. not actually fitted them yet so can’t say if they’re any good but they were recommended by others off here.Posted 4 years ago
