Hi there, it would be really helpful if some of you could share with me your knowlegde/experience of tyres.
I am currently building an On One 456 Inbred based mtb. Initially I plan to use this on the mixed rough n smooth roads around where I live. I have a decent set of 36h all mountain rims...and now I just need to sort out tyre choice...but can't get my head around how it all works.
My rims are 32mm wide, and I think I can run both 26x2.0 and 26x2.3 Big Apples. The 2.0's run around 70psi and the 2.3's around 60psi I think. Initially I was going to plump for the 2.0's....as on my wives bike I seem to deflect the Kenda Excavator 2.1's a smidgen too much at 60psi. I understand though that is isn't quite so simple...as wider tyres require less pressure etc. Can anyone give me any pointers as to which I should go for (or offer an alternative?). Some comfort for a sturdy guy 300lb ish would be good...but not at the expense of decent rolling/too much tyre deflection.
Thanks very much in advance.
