A pre-work de-stress ride, and chance to try the Schwalbe Kojak's I set up tubeless last night.
Running at 55psi they roll extremely well, and the difference between the Michelin Wild Run'r tyres is very noticeable!
Though the Kojak's are a smaller volume tyre, they still have that cushioning I was after, and even on wet leaves and twig covered ground I was not the slightest bit bothered about slipping or being deflected off course as I would have been on the high pressures I ran the Durano's at.
All in all a very successful morning and I hope to do more testing this weekend to see how they handle as I get more confidence throwing them hard into corners and the like, I just hope they don't blow off the rims 😂

- sturdycyclesGood to see some testing going on
- knotty.bearCheers Tom @sturdycycles 😉 I wanted to buy some Compass Naches Pass tires, which would have I guess been awesome, but only having 46 mm seat stay clearance would have only left me 1mm either side of the tyre, that may have been a little too close for comfort. Maybe the Schwalbe Supreme would be good size at 42 mm, but I will wait and see what developments happen in the new year. Maybe a 559 tubeless version.
- therawcaneThis is excellent! 💙
