If Stairway to Heaven is how you get there then I think I'll give it a miss, it's a reasonably hard climb.

Do you have more information?

Recommend good semi slick tyres

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Hi there,

Haven't used my MTB for a while now. I am looking to put some new tyres on it just to ride around bike paths, parks, on grass maybe. Anyone recommend some good semi slick or slick tyres that would be suitable. Tyre size 26". Did see these.

Any good? Maybe this up front and a slick at the back.

Thanks for any suggestions.

I recently made a purchase I am so happy about I though I needed to share with NoBMoB:

Anyone who has read my blogs knows a puncture ruins my races. I’m absolutely crap at getting a tube in and getting back on the bike. My usual process is I stop and turn the bike upside down then rotate the wheel so the hole is at the bottom and hold my finger over it in the hope the sealant will block it.

Races and events 2017?

We are already in 2017 and I don't have a plan!

I'm looking for some interesting events during the year, something new. Been doing MTB events since 2007 and it feels like I've starting to repeat myself so I'm looking for something new or different to look forward to and to motivate a bit of training.

What is the rest of the MTB community up to event or racing wise? any new trends or formats emerging?

Internal Rim Widths and Tyre Size

NB: Originally posted elsewhere on the Global Riders Network and appears via syndication.

Happy New Year to anyone who reads this:)

Just wondering what peoples thoughts are on internal rim widths and tyre size selection?

I'm currently running 2.3" tyres on rims with a 29mm internal width and while I'm generally happy with the setup the tyre profile is quite square (even at low PSI) which makes the tyres feel like they don't grip up straight away when cornering, if that makes sense (could be my crappy riding skills have something to do with it as well).

Cheers
