Yeah, I would try beefier tires before DH tubes.scheckler145 said:Can anyone recommend a good tire for the north shore, i rode seymour today and i got pinch flats three times. I am currently running Kenda Nevegals 2.35 kevlar bead but i'm thinking that i probably need to go for a 2.5 dh model and run thicker tubes. Any recommendations on makes and models. Thanks guys.
Single ply Nevegals are apparently pretty easy to flat, so you might have options that aren't as heavy as 1300g DH tires.
Some people are liking the Conti Rubber Queen (not for the name), they are big and sticky and not too fragile.
Something like Minion 3C might work, but I'm not in your area, maybe also check out the NSMB forum for tires that work on the shore.
