Tyres - a reccomendation..(2 posts)

Tyres - a reccomendation..muncher
May 31, 2002 7:52 AM
Following my disasters with the Mich muds, I hunted for a tyre that would let me train without worrying about punctures, grip well when needed but roll well too. Finally I ordered some Schwalbes - smoother one for the front in a 38 and a knobblier one for the rear in a 42.

Tested them for 2 weeks now on mixed trail/mud/road, and they are great. Probably a bit heavy for racing if you care about weight, but great for trails/training. Nice smooth ride too.

Here's the knobbly

700c Schwalbe Land Cruiser 40mm (Reference #C503F70040)

£9.50
SCHWALBE’s Trekking Cruiser. Quiet on pavement, yet off-road its diamond textured side lugs still afford plenty of grip. Reflective sidewall.

Tread pattern Ref: HS307.

Nope - they are not paying me - they are just good tyres at a decent price.
