  • Tyre shortlist help please??
  • Find another tenner and get some Specialized Butcher Controls? The cheaper Barons aren’t great and the Minions are a bit skinny. Hans Dampfs good if the front one is a Trailstar compound but will wear faster than the Butchers.

    Rule out the non-chili Baron, they’re made of old leather or something.

    Hans Dampfs are alright. I’m with chiefgrooveguru though, or maybe a butcher and a purgatory if you want it a little faster. Not as tough as the minions you were considering though.

    Specialized purgatory control £30 each tubeless ready 2bliss

    I’m a convert too – I have them on three of my bikes.

    Hi guys
    Ok another tyre thread I know, but…
    I need some new tyres but only have a low budget. I have narrowed it down to:-
    Conti Barons (new but wired and not black chilli) £20 each
    Maxxis Minions (new but wired also and single ply) £20 each
    or
    Schwalbe Hans Dampf – second hand but nearly new – £50 for the pair
    I have tubeless ready rims (Easton Haven) so would like to utilise them as I bought some sealent too.
    General Calderdale riding with occasional trail centres
    Cheers!!

    I’ve had damf ‘s for ages and luv em, they run slightly better if the back one is slightly worn so I just buy one ever now and again and swap them round
