After yesterday and the entertaining but less than ideal performance in the snow of the skinny XC Pros on the Rockhopper (1.8 but Panaracer are only kidding themselves on, they look more like 1.6), I'm thinking about going modern for this myself, specifically the Haro since it's got the fattest tyres.

Wit, and spoil the svelte good looks!?!?!

Not a bad idea, I'll see what I can cram in there, 2.1s might be pushing it a bit though.

I used to run 2.1 hardpacks on my 88 hopper so you should be fine.

ZZ are you still my chauffeur or would you prefer me to draft in DaveDH.

Apparently by one of the weather forecastting services there is a 40% chance of precipitation likely in the form of snow on Saturday :roll: Otherwise likely to be cold not likely much above zero centigrade, better dig out the thermals and patch up my overshoes :D

I'm thinking if DaveDH takes you up, I could offer big eck a lift and we'd have one more for the ride (assuming he's not working on the Saturday).
