- what baggy front tyre?
I’m running a kenda Nevegal on a WTB Lazer Disc rim and it’s an absolute bugger to get the thing to seat properly. Fine when I’m at home with soap and a track pump, not so fine when I’m out and about.
Having just ripped a hole in the sidewall I figure it’s time to replace it. I know some tyres tend to come up a bit larger than others round the bead so does anyone have any suggestions?
Needs to be 26″ and used on the front in the Peak district

although I didn’t like most of them, every folding Schwalbe I’ve had has gone on to a variety of rims very, very easily and by the same token there’s no need for levers to take them off.
Rocket Rons were the easiest they feel like cardboard. 2.1 Nics require no effort, 2.25s are easy and even a Snakeskin 2.4 is no trouble
2.25 Ralphs, Fat Alberts both OK
Even 2.4 wire bead 2 ply Big Bettys are easy to fit.Posted 5 years agoDelSubscriber
those lasers disc wheels are a pain to get tyres seated for sure. fortunately i’ve knackered mine so they’re about to be replaced. 😀Posted 5 years ago
i’m not a fan of folders on the front as in cases of sudden loss of air you can roll the tyre off the rim very easily, making a bad situation potentially worse.
maybe try panaracers? have found those to move around on other rims i’ve used them on ( specifically cinders and rampages ). it’s the only time you’ll find me recommend them though cos i’m not a fan of them as tyres TBH.
