    Tire Recommendation

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I want to resurrect my Klein mountain bike, which I had sorta turned into a utility bike, and start doing some moderate trail riding here in the Austin area.

    The tires are the major change that I need to make. Any suggestions as to what tire does well in the Austin/Texas environment? (From the little that I've seen, the trails range from hard-packed clay to sand.)

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    DiamondBack Expert - steel road bike
    Klein Pinnacle - classic no-suspension aluminum MTB

    I've seen people riding Maxxis Furious Fred in dry conditions. They are super fast but easily punctured.
    If you want a safer tire, Maxxis Larsen is ok. I used to ride the rear one Larsen and I was happy on dry terrain.
