Tyres for uk
« on: January 23, 2019, 04:39:31 PM »
Looking at new tyres for a 15 xcx, what are people running in the UK? It's 90/10 on/off at best. Maybe 95/5.
Thanks

 :492: it's not permitted on this forum to ask tyre or oil questions. Things never change. Dunlop Speedmaster or Avon roadrunner might still be the best available.  :027: Just joshing, before the usual culprits start picking an argument.

Flavour of the month seems to be Michelin Road5 trails but some prefer the Anakee 3's for the 90/10.

I have looked at the Michelins, but they don't do a 21inch. I think that's where the issue arises, most posts seem to be about 19inch fronts.
