Re: Rear summer tyre

I'm thinking of trying something different...

The Hutchinson Toro RR seems to be getting great reviews as a front tyre in summer and damp conditions
I like the looks of the Taipan RR, essentially a hans dampf but slightly faster rolling

dirt jump hub

I was wondering if I can run any hub on my dirt jump bike so long as the spacing is correct and I convert it to SS or does it have to be a singlespeed specific hub?

Re: Rear summer tyre

Re: Rear summer tyre

Rock razor is another I'm considering, anyone tried one?

Well I'm not after loads of grip but more than a pure XC tyre but faster rolling than a big winter tyre

Re: Rear summer tyre

I thought about the ardent race but it might not have the braking I need, while I want something fast rolling I need some good braking grip

I'll check out the bonty ones

Rear summer tyre

Any suggestions for a rear tyre for summer?

Needs to be 650b, tubeless, fast rolling but offers decent grip on trails

Thinking Maxxis Ardent 2.4 at the moment

Re: 120mm Full Sus

Camber evo seemed good but the cost might be an issue

The Anthem SX looks good value so he was interested in that

But what are you really trying to do? And take the thing to bits and see what it actually is.


I essentially want to know if I can fit my XT cranks to it

Re: DJ bike BB

So working on a mid size BB, what does this mean for a crankset? will it need to be a mid specific one?

Re: DJ bike BB
