- What tyres – really – One off event
Doing the 100k London to Brighton BHF thing I’m not sure I want to be using rubber queens for that, any ideas for something cheap I can use instead.Posted 6 years ago
It’s all on road, no? I’m sure somewhere like Halfords will sell you a cheap pair of 26″ slicks.Posted 6 years ago
on road, off road, the one in the dark? two of those have already happened this year, only the off road one left in September and that’s 120km.Posted 6 years ago
Yeah the 75 miler, off road. Was thinking the cheap speed or race kings.Posted 6 years ago
Cheap wire Contis would be a good shout
What are the cheap Racing Ralphs?
Is it Rapid Rob’s? Contis are probably still cheaper for a single event thoughPosted 6 years ago
we should do a STW roll-call for this – there seem to be a few of us doing it. any idea how many people do it altogether?Posted 6 years ago
I’m just going for a hard tyres rather than new tyres. Nobby Nic/ Racing Ralphs at 40-45 psi. I’ve also got a cheap Michelin Wild Race’r that I picked up for £15 that I can use if either of those wear out before the day or if the Nobby Nic might be a bit too knobbly.
I’m doing it with 2 others I can’t imagine the turnout will be massive after all it’s prolly hard, not like mincing around for 100 miles on a road bike with 10000 other lycra clad nightmares.Posted 6 years ago
Haha! I’m doing that one too!Posted 6 years ago
It’s not a hard ride and last year they had literally hundreds of riders for the off road ride. Not doing it this year because last year’s ride was more like a procession than a ride. No technical elements at all and most of it is on the Downs Link which is as flat as a pancake. Cheapo Race Kings will be fine.Posted 6 years ago
Semi slicks (furious freds) also good. Plenty of CX bikes will be doing it too. Last year I saw someone do the off road ride on a shopper with a basket on the front FFS.Posted 6 years ago
