I was out doing a wee bit of trial riding on the XT for the first time this morning and the Tourance tyres just 'aint cutting it in the mud and leaves. I would have been as well with slicks ;D
As I am fortunate enough to have the big RT for touring and long days out, I am thinking about a more aggressive tyre for the XT. Probably 70/30 off road / on road, I'm not overly worried about stellar road performance as I only commute 10 miles a day and bimble around the back roads and tracks on it and hardly ever over 50mph. Suggestions?
