I am doing it for the first time, 100km. Looking for a reasonably fast time on a hardtail. Anybody got any advice on tyres, I’ve got racing ralphs or Bontrager muds?
Ralphs, the tracks are dry-ish*. and getting dryer with no rain forecasted. Most of the route is on hard tracks and tarmac.

trainingriding recently that will help , alas not enough to outrun the Honk at HoNC that will be attatched to DrP’s bars.
Weather looks perfect at the moment , light winds , sunshine and 12’c.
Will aim for the 100k route , and see how i get on .oldgitMember
Me on my ten ton tessy 29er. 99.99% of that tonnage is due to the slime inner tubes, I’ve had a month of punctures.
Last time I did it there was a blizzard and the group I was with ended up huddled behind a drystone wall.
Did a 300km Saturday, hopefully this’ll be a piece of cake.Posted 3 years agoclubberMember
I rode my first five or so on mtbs (including a 6″ full susser one year…). When I got my first CX I rode it on that and I reckon it’s brilliant and for me made it an even better event – the road stuff felt easy and the less interesting offroad stuff became more challenging. I’m not riding this year but would definitely be on a CX if I was.
or to gaz, on a 29er with CX tyres as an alternative.Posted 3 years agoaracerSubscriber

Broke a valve stem changing tyres on the mtb, and cba going out and trying to buy another, so probably going to be the XO2, but keep sneaking a look at the Domane, and wondering whether it’d be more comfortable. If I could fit cx tyres on it I’d be riding that I think.Posted 3 years ago
