Not to pleased with my Specialized Pro tires, Either they are cursed or I have been having a horrible string of bad luck.
I donít even know if they hook up good I cant go down hill on my bike. T
This is my first full suspention/disk bike and I can wait to haul ass down hill!
Climbed up and on the way back down I had to ride the brakes because the front tire was throwing dirt and gravel in my face. Resulting in damage to my favorite sunglasses that I have owned for over 3 years. This never happened with my Kenda Claws.
After this ride I bought a crud catcher and a rear shock mud flap.
Went for a long climb only to realize my font tire was getting low. Had to head back down the trail (designated up hill only) So I had to ride the brakes again on the way down. When I got home the front tire was flat and had a goat head in it.
Replaced the tube and installed a tire liner.
Not to bad but it was a really cold day windy as heck. I didnít climb very well, I figured it was just me. Lots of rocks and jumps which was fun. But no fast down hill sections
Went for a ride on a paved trail. Another cold windy day and I could get into the ride and it was wearing me out bad. I look at the back tire and it is half way down. I went back home and adjusted the air pressure.
I'm climbing and I finally have the bike tuned in and feel comfortable on my bike and climbed for about 2.75 miles where I usually ride 2-4 times a week during the summer. (never had a flat on this trail) I cant wait to get to the top and finally enjoy some down hill on this sweet bike I just got.
About 200-300 feet from the fun down hill section (where I think I'm in the roam video) I look down at my front tire and it is low as hell.
So now the front tire is too low to ride and I have to walk the bike back to the truck down steep sections of hill. I get about a 1/2 mile to the parking lot and now the back tire is almost flat.
The front had another goat head in it and I donít know what happened to the rear tire.
Old bike has Kenda Claws with Slime tire liners. Only had one flat when I first got the bike then I installed the tire liners and never had another flat after about 6 months of riding. And I rode this bike in a lot of gnarly thorn areas around town.
Actually I think it's the spacing of the knobs, it allows goat head thorns to fall in-between the knobs and give me flats. Maybe the thin side walls too.
Any one want to buy a set of spare tiers for your specialized?? $35 a pair
