Maxxis Cross Mark either tubeless or converted with a good amount sealent in it. Cacti will be the main source of flats.metacycle said:Anyone have any recommendations for type of tire for the Intermontane Challenge in Kamloops?
A couple of people running those around here.ccm said:Schwalbe Racing Ralph snake skin 2.25 or Michelin xcr Dry 2 xpert 2.0 any good?
I would put sealant in. You never know when you will get caught in a cacti patch.anthony.delorenzo said:Good info here, thanks for posting.
There are a bunch of us coming down from Whitehorse, pretty much everyone is on Racing Ralphs, 26 or 29, tubeless or not. Sounds like a good choice. They work really well up here on our dry singletrack.
I just switched to Conti Mountain Kings (29er) to get more cornering traction. They also seem to hook up a little better for standing singlespeed climbing. Still on the fence about what I'll run down there, I'll bring my Ralphs down as well.
How much of an issue will thorns be? Should I worry about putting sealant in my tubes?
It should be more dry and hard then soft. I would go with the Racing Ralph. One of my house mates runs RRs and is quite happy with them.ccm said:would Nobby Nic (at least on front) be better than Racing Ralph with all the predicted soft and dry, and or loose gravelly sections?

Apparently the guy wanted to keep "free" in "free-riding" and didn't want the x-c guys riding his trail, which BTW, is on crown land.anthony.delorenzo said:Some local ******* just sabotaged the course for today. I guess he doesn't want people on "his" trail. We're waiting for a re-route but are losing the best 30 km of the stage today.
