    New Bridgestone AX41 as a possible new front tire option

    I doubt they'll have something sized for our rear, but might be an interesting option for the front. I'm in a bit of a struggle trying to decide on new tires, as the majority of my riding is on the street, but when I get it dirty I tend to get it axle-deep in garbage dirty, or holycrappleasedontwashout on the gravel dirty.

    I like the look of it if nothing else.


    Edit: looking at the sizing chart, they might not even have anything for the front...

    Interesting tire but as far as I’m concerned the Shinko 241 is the perfect tire.
    If I’m ever on LIFE SUPPORT, UNPLUG ME. Then plug me back in... See if that works. Hidden Content

    So which tire is that? Does't look like it would be very good on a wet road......

    I'm very happy with the 241 on road and dirt as well....But that tire (Bridgestone) might fit your needs better,

    It's a Tire Tom!

    A round one like most others, made of rubber, synthetic I think. Something that only those that regularly ride muddy, sandy, or any slippery side slopes or trails made of deep sand and mud would use as a primary tire. Probably not the best to use in the rain while driving on wet pavement if moving along at speed (like any knobby, but that's common knowledge). However the knobs on these do wrap around very nicely and the tire has a nice curve to it that keeps traction well when laid over. Most important it doesn't have those big rectangular knobs down the center. It's very common in these parts. Works great on dry pavement too, a little noisy if you can get it to spin fast enough. Certainly nothing that should scare anyone. I ride with guys that have these on the front and we ride at 65 regularly between trails. It wears well too. Are you the type that would run this tire...?
