    Tires with Stronger treads

    Hey so I keep ripping the treads off of my tires, not wearing then down but after about 200 miles the individual treads will just rip off my rear tire exposing the inner threads.the only solution i found was to basucally r7n a dh tire for the back and it never died but i got tired of all the added weight and resistance......maybe something in the middle

    so any good tires suggestions?


    Oh and The biggest I can fit in the rear is 2.20 and 2.35 in the front and in the past I have destroyed 100$ continentals on a week and keep rippinh my maxxis ignitors apart as well

    What the heck are you riding on?

    Spesh Ground Controls have held up really well for me. I run 2.1 rear and 2.3 front.

    I ride really rocky steep terrain and I only have the ss

    I thought this would be a more common problem..il post pictures tomorrow but the treads rip right off of the tire leaving the threads that makeup the tire exposed

    I would find out what others in your area are riding/liking and go from there.

    Cotharyus I don't realy skid that much and I think it's gotta be a combination of my gearing, steep slopes and hard rock surface... climbing granite slabs kinda deal and it seems the first thing to give and spin my wheel is the tread itself

    And I'll definitely ask riders in my area but sadly I don't know any other single speeders and I haven't realy met a geared rider that has this probkem (granny gear doesn't have enough power to rip treads I guess)

    So I guess there are no colorado single speed riders on here?

    Buffalo creek, and golden area trails(dakota ridge, apex)

    No one else has had this problem? I guess I'm doing something wrong when I peddle

    I ride some of the grippiest terrain around (slickrock) and have not had issues even on XC tires. Sounds like you're grabbing the rear brakes a bit too much coming down through the chunk? I really doubt you're ripping them off climbing, unless you average 1000w.

    What are you riding for pressure? A friend of mine had similar issues which went away when he increased his tire pressure a few psi. I've never had this problem myself.

    Damn I was hoping it was because of my monstrous calfs
    I guess I'll just get the same tires again(maxxis ignitors mmm so grippy) and stay off the breaks from now on

    Brakes not breaks.

    do you mean piddle? or do you mean pedal?

    It's a combo of the smart phone and the fact that I act like I am 10

    And btw your mark Twain quote works perfectly in this situation

    I ride my ss on the same trails and have zero issues. I run 27-28psi and run a ground control 2.3 in the back and butcher 2.3 in the front.
