Im doing my first race soon, DW50. Just looking at getting some lighter/quicker tyres. any help would be good
Thinking of the below combos
Front + Rear
1. Monorail + Cross Mark
2. Aspen + Monorail
3. Aspen + Cross Mark
This 'little' bulge appeared 4 days after the Angry Doctor, while the bike was simply on its rack.
Seems to be quite a few Maxxis tires (not sure if it's isolated to Crossmarks - which are my favourite tires) with these little bulges appearing (mid ride), therefore rendering the tyre useless...
Not sure exactly how many ppl had had the same problem, but would be keen to write to Maxxis and ask "What's up?"...
Well got a bit lucky today when I realised after the ride that I had a torn sidewall.
I sure am having no luck with tyre's and tubes on my new bike. First I get a glass puncture right at the finish of the Dirtworks. Must have been one of those warm beer bottles that we all got handed at the finish line!
Then last week I get a pinch flat after going off a drop in Manly. The tubes that come standard with the Trance X0 sure are damn thin! Some sort of Maxxis lightweight tube.
Well just realised I had a torn sidewall upon finishing my ride today. Was a nice lightweight Crossmark Exception too Only had done a few hundred km on it. They sure are skinny sidewalls on the Exception series. The most abuse this tyre got would have been going down Andersons.
Luckily it didn't blow out on the trail. I just saw the tube bubble out a bit when I got home.
