i know, also bc g-ones have a 20" version??
Cheap and cheerful?
Cheap Mezcals on Ebay - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/324379130614 They've got 27.5 ones as well.
Yes, cheap but you won't be cheerful if you ride them on twisty wet lanes. They do last ages, I was too mean to chuck mine so had to put up with the shit grip on my winter bike forever.
Anyone have experience with WTB Exposures?
Looking at a pair of 34/36c for a new single speed build that I’ll mostly be using for shit roads and the occasional bit of gravel/off road stuff.
Yes, pleased with them. Decent puncture protection, roll well on tarmac and seem OK on gravel. Obviously don't expect too much with the slick tread, I had a couple of wooahhh moments today off road but muddy/leaves. Those are 36s.
Yeah, thought that might be the case
Tan wall Victoria zero in 38 now available
Got a pair when they were on offer for commuting and winter training in terrible roads and bumpy cycleways. Pleased so far, seem a lot less fragile than the gravelkings they replace.
Which tyres should i buy: i have some gravel king 32mm that in reality are 30mm and i look for a big slick real 35-38mm possibly light. i 'd like some Barlow Pass but they are ridiculously expensive. Which are my options? also anyone tried this https://www.bikeshop.es/cubierta-vittoria-terreno-zero-grafeno-g2-0-700x38c-tubeless-ready-flexible/166156.html ?
G-One Speed are good - looking for tubeless or not?
I might be interested in your Gravelkings.
wtb exposure 36c ?
i have a pair for sale - new - that i got when they were on discount. Not looking to use them anytime soon as my current wheels are 650c
I've got the Terreno Zeros in 650b. Really rate them.
I am really enjoying my Terravail Rampart tyres have been riding them in really awful lanes in Chilterns with no issues. Tubeless set up was a breeze on Shamal Carbon wheels too.
Would bang again. They sound really nice on the road too
What are people's thoughts on rotation arrows on slick road tyres, are they pointless and can be ignored? I'd heard manufacturers only put them on to stop people asking them which way to mount the tyres.
I set some tubeless tyres up last night and rode them into work today. I've just noticed I mounted both in the opposite direction to the tiny rotational arrow. They've got no real tread to speak of and I can't see it making any difference and I'd rather avoid the hassle of having to drain sealant, remove, replace and set up again. Am I ok to leave them as is?

Just don’t use them for social rides.
Looking to take the knobblies off my Kinesis Tripster AT for the winter, so am after reccomendations for a tubeless tyre for the rough lanes of Kent.
32-38 ideally and doesn't need to be massively fast, but don't want anything that'll suck the joy out of riding either.
I have a pair of 36 WTB Exposures in the parts bin (bought cheap when there was a deal on a while back), but quality control seems a bit lacking, so looking for other options.
Decent price in the 35mm size. I've got a set and really rate them.
How’s grip in the wet?
Decent, I run them relatively low pressure and they've been good. So far they've held up well, minimal wear showing and no punctures etc, hold air well so minimal / to no topping up needed.
Nice one. Thanks
I've got a set of 32c WTB Expanse tyres that I used a little over summer (maybe 500km). They're just a little too narrow for my liking for summer gravel rides so I'm going to replace them with Byway 34s next year. They were excellent on the road though.
Let me know if you're interested and I'll send you some pics.
Thanks, but have just bought a pair of the above.
