Have to say that looks lush ,) What does it ride like with them there tires?*? :lol:


The tyres are/were a mistake and they won't be replaced. Slow and heavy. I was quite surprised as I had the Super Moto versions before and they were fine but I kept getting punctures in them.
When I have a few quid I'll replace them.


Yeah, Big Apples look the business, but they're not the best tyres indeed.
The 2" ones are okay, but I found the 2.35s to lose grip at random and without warning. They also wander around under hard braking.
Maybe they're okay when you put them on very wide rims, but on normal ones they're horrid.

I switched to Bontrager Hank 2.2 inchers, and haven't looked back.
They're not much lighter (750 vs 825gr) , but they're predictable, grippy and I haven't had a flat since I installed them. They're also faster due to the dual compound.
