ive no doubt this topic is common but helpful advice would be welcome
my mates and i are of to the pass'portes du soleil this year and was after some guidence for tyre choice
i run an orange 5 with fox 36 talas, i tend to run faster more xc type tyres as i do a lot of hardpac riding along with single track
if anyone could reccommend a fast rolling tyre with good grip for downhill i would be pleased to hear it
i have thought about the kenda 8 block but had doubts about the grip levels for cornering :?
