Moab - shipping & tire selection
Posted June 12, 2000 - 08:38 AM
Freezer, you out of the hospital yet? I certainly hope so. Bryan mentioned that you were going to check a shipping company that you had used before to get your bike to Denver...any progress?
Dougie & other Moab frequenters...
What would you recommend for tire selection? I know it's very rocky & the slickrock holds like epoxy (good & bad...can't spin the rear climbing steep hills)
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Last time I needed a new tire before we went so I put on a cheap IRC. It lasted the weekend.
If you have a pretty new tire, you will probably make it. If you have a worn tire, bring a new one with you. Fred sells tires but they are expensive.

Hard terrain = soft compound

Doug’s got it. Everything from a Dunlap 755 to a Pirelli MT21 will do fine. If you run a soft terrain tire, you may get the best hook-up in the sand and decent ware. We run through a rear every 200 miles (2-3 days) or so out there. Usually, Saturday night is spent cussing over a new tire.
