Can somebody advice on a good quality tire (on ebay) for my '97 Giant Terrago MTB?
I'm using Maxxis right now and it's time to get new ones.
I'm after a reasonably good "mixed on/off road" kind of tire....
I've seen this:
also: self-sealing inner tubes:
do they actually work?
why ebay? i'm sure you have a local shop, or just order from chainreaction out of the uk (cheap and fast). there are much better tires than those two out there.
my personal favorite on/off road tire is the WTB nanoraptor, it wears like iron and has excellent riding on and off road. i don't like semi-slicks (like the kozmik) because when you lean on the road the side knobs fold and it makes for weird road handling. i even prefer "city tires" (slicks over 32c width) to semi slicks, on and off road.
the self sealing tubes work not bad, they are quite heavy but if you don't care about weight they can help. note that they won't help with pinch flats
