Dakota 5-0 this weekend, do any locals have any recommendations for tires based on trail conditions and weather??
It has been dry, expect some loose over hard, so I probably wouldn't run a semi-slick. There have been cows out on the trail in a bunch of areas, so something high volume will smooth things out a bit. You can get by with a race sidewall, just be careful on Dakota Ridge (after the Bacon Station).
