MTV/DINO Race - Tire Choice Issue (Semi--slick or Tread?)DavidK
Nov 8, 2002 6:42 AM
Anyone race at Major Taylor Velodrome two weeks ago? Anyone going tomorrow?

The rideable portion of the course was more than a 1/3rd pavement and about 1/3rd grass with two short mud (not too wet) stretches. I rode 35mm Kenda Kross tires pumped up over 60psi. I am contemplating using 28mm semi-slick Specialized Nimbus tires on Saturday. I think that it would help on the pavement and not hurt in the grass and that the mud will be drier tomorrow as compared to two weeks ago.

Anyways, I would like to hear any and all opinions. Thanks. David Krhaulik
