What Tyres for Antur Stiniog
Butchers are good and can sometimes be found for not much money (because they’re not cool)
Having said that I just used a regular singleply on the back with a little extra pressure, no bother. It’s fast and rough but as long as you stay on track it’s not really tyre-slashy (offtrack is another story, lots of loose flints, it punishes strava-dicks hilariously)Posted 4 years ago
Mate of mine, who is admittedly bloody fast, destroyed his tyres and recommended dual ply. I want the super tacky for skill compensation.
I currently have a ST High Roller 2.35 on the front and a 60a Larson 2.35 on the back. Great for trail centres, not so much for full on DH.
The Butchers look like a carbon copy of the Minion.
What are they like on size?Posted 4 years agochakapingSubscriber
I think Dual Ply and super soft rubber is the best bet
Yep, but no need for sticky rubber on the rear – it’s fast and rocky.
Minions £30 each at CRC isn’t amazing value but by no means a rip off either…Posted 4 years ago
Well it makes a change from the Bike Park Wales threads!
I am thinking full on DH tyres for not loads of money and was going to get some Muddy Marys but they have sold out from where I was going to get them from and I can’t see any others at that sort of price. Everything is coming out at about £70 for the pair, I missed out on the £20 each on one deal and now the £25 each Bike Discount deal.
I think Dual Ply and super soft rubber is the best bet. I just cant find what I want for the price I want to pay.
I cant even see any second hand Minions!
Any ideas or does anybody want to sell me something?Posted 4 years agostMember
Minions in the Spring – Autumn for the cop then Swampthings for the winter. Picked up some Wet Screams of a chap during the Summer but can’t see me using them as a pair.
Muddy Marys look as though they might be decent enough though. Depends on how you’re riding at the Cop. A pair of Minion Fs with something more mud oriented for the front in winter would be my choice if I was looking to keep to a sensible number of tyres.
It’s mentioned above but I’d be wanting maximum puncture resistance for Arthur, easy to catch the back tyre on hard edges. A couple of us have been trying tubeless ont he big bikes and last visit to Arthur was great, a fair few sealant burps but some proper hammer on the back wheel and other than a quick top up of air halfway through the day no issues.
Running tubes I’d want dual ply tyres with DH tubes. That way you can run whatever pressure you prefer and reduce the risk of losing uplifts while you go back to the car to swap tubes.Posted 4 years ago
Thanks everyone, its too difficult to turn down havinalaff. I am used to High Rollers too so there shouldn’t be much adapting needed.
I’m planning on getting some DH tubes too, I might even put a bit of sealant in for extra measure but maybe not as they will only go in for DH sessions.Posted 4 years ago
