Mountain Bike Suspension Parts & Maintenance : Mountain Bike Tire Tricks


There some other more modifications that you
can do. In other types of terrain just to make the tires you have on hand work better.
One thing that you can do if you have tire that is starting to get worn out down the
middle and still has good side knobs. You can just go ahead and trim down those middle
knobs altogether. If you look at this tire, which is a 2.2 tire, and this exact same model
is 2.2 see the big big difference in the center knobs. This tire rolls pretty fast because
I am used to the way these center knobs corner. It corners predictably and for people that
like to really ride the front end of the bike and be able swap around and drift. It really
enables some better riding. Another thing that you can do is you can take a tire that
maybe you don’t like ride of stock. That you maybe bought or someone has given to you.
With a little bit of modifications you can make it a better performing tire. You can
do this any brand of tire, it really doesn’t matter. The thing that I did not like about
this tire was that you can see where there these indentations there, this used to a full
height knob it. It was the same height as the side knob. And I felt like I could not
corner as well as like because there wasn’t enough open shoulder tread to really bite
into the ground. So like twenty minutes with some sheers I was able to just cut that up
and make this into a completely different tire. And there’s things you can do like that
where you start to get worn rounded knob on a tire. You can just cut nice sharp shelf
into it. That can increase, that just being efficient with resources, being efficient
with cash expenditures and getting the most out of your products. Which is always something
that is good to keep in mind when you are spending as much as people tend to be spending
on mountain bikes today.
