- what tyres for Cannock, in the wet ?
The bits that have been armoured with pebbles are slippy no matter what tires you have (unless your using super tacky’s or something). The rest is sand and drains well I dont see what wrong with the racing ralphs.
You see kids on BMXs going round the cannock trails so a long as your a half decent MTBer you should be fine on anything. If your planning on racing your mates or sommit again ralphs should be fine.Posted 6 years agorocketmanMember
Best way to deal with the pebbles is to put some rubber down. 2.4 Nics most excellent, Maxxis Advantage also pretty good. Small, closely-placed tread blocks aka SB8s or Intense System 4 also very good on the pebbles but not so hot elsewhere.
Best to just MTFU (as they say) and ride round with what you’ve got otherwise you’ll need a tyre support truckPosted 6 years agostMember
Yup, just ride whatever you have on for riding elsewhere. The main cannock clique ;o0 will swap tyres over twice a year, autumn into winter then winter into spring.
Probably like most riders out there ;o)
Apart from Scruff who changes tyres whenever the sun rises and Cakebite who rides whatever his bikes comes back from Swinnos fitted with.Posted 6 years agoz1ppyMember

It had a layer of sandy grit last night, & was quite sketchy, so take care. I had a nasty off on SB8’s about 6weeks ago, so only run them on the rear. Ran a Bonty XCR on the 29er last night, but even that wasnt great. Back to good ol’ Nevegal on the front for me.
And, driving up from Essex to ride Cannock Chase… 😐Posted 6 years ago
