Impulse purchased. And didn’t see steerer length. Turns out it was the last one. So will measure dimensions of fork and if it turns out to be too short, happy to ship it on here for what I paid.
Does anyone have experience of IRC CX tyres?
I was looking at these
Never found adding glitter did anything anyway.
GK SKs, avg 6k Kms on mix of road and gravel. No punctures. You're doing it wrong. ;-)
Amen to this on both counts.
Yesterday I started at about 50Psi, but then was running lower, as I was having to stop and pump every 2 mins...
It's the tied spokes of the TL era.
yo ill take the fork if it doesnt fit.
What is the nature of the punctures?
Haven't had a chance to investigate, but basically thorn or something sharp and sub 3mm
Am going to take both tyres off hopefully today, and see how I can progress...
Am going to also switch to Muc-Off sealant, which apparently is even better than Stans
I've been using caffelatex effeto mariposa sealant (on 32mm gravelking SKs) - no complaints
Your mileage may vary. My are proper cut up after 2,000 miles :(
Getting some 650b wheels built up by the forums Arkane Wheels. 25mm internal for 47-50c tubeless. Loaded gravel riding, possibly Iceland divide but more likely places like the Jurassic coast, thanks COVID. Forum approved all-rounder? Probably best to avoid tanwalls given the vomit inducing shade of green..
edit heading over to the All The Six Fifty Bees Thread!
Is now a good time to ask if anyone's tried gravelking sk plus? The tougher ones
I've used it, no way. Race sealed a tyre that muc off stuff couldn't from my experience
Thanks for the heads up, will get Stans Race instead
Used them for riding on road and off road for the last 2 months. Not sure if I had a puncture once or just forgot to inflate them - no cuts or leaking sealant. Installed them with the logo over the valve and they have slipped, now almost halfway, which I don't mind. Great tyre.
I also had problems with Stans. The sealant would leak out of the sidewall and not form a seal. Now I'm using Orange and it works great.
Pondering 2021 bike plans
I was going to suggest @BareNecessities to add 'just get an XC bike' to the thread title ..
rad. reflectors are a bonus
Straight to Functional!
I did that last year
Can't believe you didn't notice
