    So I’m looking for a bigger front tyre to fit a mk1 Swift fork. Any reccomendations as there doesn’t seem to be a lot out there. Anything new for 2018 that I should wait for?

    Nobby Nic? Reasonably light and grippy.

    In my experience of bike packing, you’ve got the wrong tyre for 3/4 of the ride anyway, so perhaps chuck anything cheap on there! It’ll be good for 1/4 of the ride anyway.

    I have just fitted a 2.6 Nobby Nic to front of my Mk1 Stooge, it is OK, but doesn’t come up that big and doesn’t have anything like the volume of a true “Plus” tyre. I did want the 2.8 but could not find it anywhere in the UK.
