    Warp tyres, is it safe?

    Brought some maxxis high roller a couple months ago to replace the continentals and fitted as tubeless. Once fitted the back tyre wobble side to side when you spin the wheel, I thought the rim need re-turning and took it to a mechanic that I know. He said the rim is fine, he took the tyre off...

    "Ghetto tubeless" road tyres

    Ghetto tubeless for those that haven't come across the term is the name given to a tubeless setup on non-tubeless ready rims. I bought some cheap Mavic Aksium's recently to use as winter wheels and thought I'd have a go at a ghetto tubeless setup and have decided to share my learnings to date in...

    Studded 27.5 Tyres

    I'm looking for some studded 27.5 x 2.4" tyres (or maybe a little narrower) that aren't extortionately priced. I think it might be timing, and low stock supplies with winter advancing, but I'm struggling to find anything below £60 per tyre. Sadly I couldn't plan ahead this year as I was...

    Which quick flat-bar bike? Also, wisdom of 650b/47 tyres?

    Hello, I'm looking into getting a new flat-bar bike, for commuting and leisure riding, but also with the goal of increasing the distance I can ride (beyond 20 miles or so). I would want mudguards and a rear rack, but I'm also looking for a bike that is better-suited to covering distance...

    Replacement Tyres

    Just obtained a very nice set of 27" x 1 1/4 Campagnolo hub Mavic rimmed wheels. The existing tyres are perished so need replacing. The traditional tan wall 27 x 1 1/4 tyres look huge and not really in keeping with the wheels? Is there a lower profile racing type tyre available as thi would suit...

    Tyres and bike/rider load

    Do tyres perform equally under different loads, or should load be taken into account when choosing a tyre? A 65kg racer is a very different prospect to my 95kg plus pannier so I shouldn't expect the same experience as them if I used the same tyres as them, right? I didn't have much luck with...

    Winter off road tyres for a Genesis Croix de Fer

    I had a very enjoyable half day in the New Forest recently. So, I am thinking of tyres with more tread and width for the cycling trails there. I have no plans for serious offroad adventures but some off road capability would be useful. With mudguards the bike will accept 28mm tyres and...

    Is EV 15 Along the Rhine Rideable on 28mm Road Tyres?

    Ladies and Gents of CycleChat. I’m considering riding part of EV15 along the Rhine, probably the section between Strasbourg and Cologne/Koln. I would be lightly loaded with a single pannier on a Van Nicholas Yukon, shod with 28mm GP 4 Season tyres. I after the opinions of anyone who has...

    Michelin City Protek Plus tyres - comparable to Marathon?

    I've acquired a pair of these tyres in 700 x 32c size fitted to a couple of hybrid rims. Until I looked closely I actually thought they were Marathons, since they had been on a commuting hack. What I want to know is does anyone on here run these Michelin tyres for commuting or touring, and is...

    Gravel Tyres

    I'm having problems navigating the minefield that is gravel tyres. I have been running some Panracer Gravelking 35's for a few months now and they ride great. However, at that size or bigger they only do tubeless compatible tyres and I don't want to run tubeless (maybe one day, but not yet) so...

    Trek Alpha - Is it OK to get 25 tyres instead of original 23?

    Apologies if this has been covered but I did not find what I was looking for via a Google search and I'm new so apologies if this in the wrong section. After a maiden ride on my (new to me) second hand Trek Alpha 2.3, I had a quick look at the tyres and could see signs of potential previous...

    Sporty, cheap, puncture resistant tyres?

    Yeah I know, it doesn't quite work like that :laugh: For my bike over in Spain which is currently being ridden by the brother in law; I took the semi-knobbly adventure road tyres off in the spring and put 32mm gatorskins on purely for puncture protection. He's hit a cats eye today and managed...

    Bike's had an annoying little bump once per wheel rev. Inspected the tyres and there's a bit of an indentation on one. Looks like a defect to me but I've no experience with these massive tyres. Thoughts? Schwalbe Big Apple 60-559
