How do you find the Mud X Breezer?  I hear they are excellent in mud (strangely!) but how are they on wet roots etc?  Do they roll reasonably well?

Don't diss the racer,. Mine has straight bars, one gear and i stripped and repainted it last summer over a three day period, it looks the nuts and is quick and no ones gonna nick it. Ideal for commuting
Keep it foolish...

pittgoat: Best mud tyres ive ever used. They are quite narrow at 2" but when they do slide they are always nice and controlled and you can drift around unlike the nobby nic on my Inbred which is an accident waiting to happen when it gets muddy. Their knobs are quite soft so move around a bit so as good as anything on wet roots which dont really have any grip. Had them for a year although obviously not used all that time but barely any wear on them. Obviously if you ride in sticky mud anything will clog up but the Nevegals for example are a joke near anything mud related as they clog up straight away

Breezer- Have you ever run Bontrager Big Earls? I tried to get another ST Highroller from Halfrauds today but they were asking for £24.99 for a wire bead!!! Found the kevlar bead Big Earl in another shop for £22 so thought i would give it a go.

Nope as the mudx have always come out top in every xc mud tyre test ive seen hence I bought them and agree heh. I prefer narrower tyres in the mud so they cut through and less clogging but you have to watch them over roots. Glad I have them on as its tipping it down here, tomorrow is going to be damp! Thats if I even make it round a lap as my dodgy hamstring has been annoying me all day sigh

Well i can now highly recommend Bonty Big Earl's Smile Thy are faster rolling than Highrollers, slightly bigger volume and impressively grippy in the quagmire we were riding in today, and there were several off camber sections where i was sure it would slide out, but it hung on like a limpet ;D The ones i have are the wet versions, with very widely spaced knobs for mud shedding so not sure what they will be like in the dry, so might have to get the dry versions when (or if :Smile) it starts to dry out.
