    1x1 + snowtires

    What size and pressures is everyone running. Here in Maine we mostly ride snowmachine trails. i would like to ride the biggest I can get away with. Decided the Pugsley was too big (top tube/standover.) So 1x1 lemon/lime it is. I am also looking at Large Marge rims for this greenbeast.

    Hope

    Same one's I use for sand...

    Maxxis Minion DHF/DHR in the 2.5", usually around 27-33lbs.

    Friends usually run Nokians, Maxxis, or Kendas. No skinnier than a 2.3", usually in the same pressure range.

    *We even sometimes re-use last seasons tires, and use diagonal cutters to sipe the outer tread blocks for better grip.

    ~Then again, this is for Sierra snow in California and Cascade snow in Oregon, so I'm not sure any of this helps.

    Im going to be using a 2.8 michelin in front and a 2.5 timberwolf in back. A couple of guys on the alaska board are running similar setups. Check www.mtbtires.com, shiggy has actual tire measurements for a lot of tires on there. In loose snow deep tread helps.

    You can run 3.0" Gazzaloddi on Large Marge rims on a 1x1. I believe you have to cut off the v-brake bosses though. The 1x1 has tons of tire clearance.

    IMHO: Makes one wonder why Nokian, one of the companies known for their snow and ice tires only make them up to a 2.1, I believe. Completely contradictory to common sense.

    ~You use the same general mindset with sand as you do snow, only difference is whether you can get away with shorts and sunblock.

    They are big......compared to their other offerings. They now make a "lite" version also. I havent used these nor put a caliper to them to see how wide they actually are.

    tires tires ties!

    I am looking at WTB Weirwolf 2.5 at this time. Half the weight of a typical dh tire. Once i get my large marges, I'll look at 3.0's and cutting off the canti bosses.
    I am not too concerned about weight. Mainly float and footprint.
    thanks so far for the info.

    I have set of the Weirwolf 2.55 ready for winter. Nice volume, really light for the size.

    Tires tires tires

    My LBS found some Kenda Tomac Blue Grooves on close-out. $25 each. 1450 grams at 2.7 width. Soon as they are here and mounted, I'll post pics of the new green meanie.
