    32mm tyres

    Just wanted to put a review up, I just changed from 28c to 32c gp5000 tyres. I have only done to short trips on them so far but seem really positive. I took about 15psi out of what I was running the 28s at but may try losing another 5psi and see how that goes. The ride seems a lot smoother and...

    What MTB tyres are we running for muddy winter?

    I've just got back from my first curtailed (snapped gear cable) MTB ride for a while. I'm in Northwest England with lots of moorland tracks paths. It seems the landscape has got a bit soft and squishy in the time i've been away and my 2× Rocket Rob Tyres which are increasingly worn...

    Studded winter tyres?

    Talking of winter tyres, is anybody aware of studded tyres that come in 28mm widths? I've googled, but they all seem to be in much wider tyres and my Ribble winter/audax frame, just takes 28mm tyres. As a victim to black ice a couple of years ago, it would increase my confidence a tad when the...

    Recommendations for winter/wet weather tyres.

    I’ve always used Conti Gatorskins year round, great puncture protection but others suggest not great in the wet? I’ve not had that experience but don’t push my luck around corners on wet roads. My friend has just asked for winter/wet weather tyre recommendations for his wife’s Cube Agree, I’m a...

    Pair of Specialized All Condition Armadillo Elite tyres 700x28

    These came on a bike I recently bought, so unsure of mileage they have covered, but they look in excellent condition, with minimal use, they were just too big to fit with mudguards :sad: Looking for £20 posted

    OEM Tyres?

    Long story short, after a couple of years off the bike, and several years not riding mtb I treated myself to a nice little hard tail a few months back. Back along several years, the OEM tyres on bikes used to be a bit poo, plus I wanted something a bit quick whilst I built a bit of bike...

    e-bike tyres?

    My wife is looking at getting new tyres for her e-bike for winter as her current tyres aren't particularly grippy in the wet. Should I be looking at e-bike specific tyres for her or can I just point her in the direction of an appropriate sized tyre with good grip and puncture protection?

    What size tyres ?

    I have decided to change my winter bike (2010 Defy 1) for a gravel bike. I cycle circa 300 miles a month and being the wrong side of 70, speed is now of no relevance. Whilst all my cycling is on ‘tarmac’ it is primarily on country lanes, wherein the quality of road surface is often dreadful...

    Schwalbe Marathon Mondial tyres

    Just thought I'd throw this up here as it may be of use to some. I've read reviews of Mondial tyres having weak sidewalls and my experience confirms this. The pictures attached are of a tyre removed yesterday. There's a distinct pattern of wear on both sides of the sidewall, although it's...

    Do unused tyres go hard with age?

    I found an unused, un-packaged Vittoria Rubino 700x23 that I had forgotten about in the outside shed. It had probably been there for two or three years but judging by the tread, had never been used. I've used a dozen or so Rubinos in the past and have never had a problem fitting them. This...
