MTB - Palos Question for tires...

Hey,

I ride a Cannondale Super V 700 with Kenda Flame street tires...

My question is, how are the tracks in Palos as far using this type of tire, do I need to switch to something more knobby?

Your a queer for having those on YOUR bike! J/K

For the single track trails you will definetly need knobbies for 2 reasons. First, the trails have all types of hazzards that can and will puncture those street tires. Second, it theres any moisture at all you will be spinning those tires trying to get uphill. Get knobbies!

You're going to screw yourself up at palos with a street tire.

If you want tires, I have 2 pairs of Panaracer FireXC pro 2.1s that are barely used. One pair is the black/red aramid bead folding tire, the other is the black/blue standard wire bead. $20 a pair.
