Quote of the Day: Maxxis Minion DHF 2.5

Tyres for the Alps? The question is currently burning like Madras with too many chillis in the minds of the TFITers at the moment.

What do you take? Speed or grip? Which manufacturer? Which type?

Then like a poet sitting on the throne of truth (…!) Matt W sent through a sage Whatsapp this morning of a quote he read on BikeRadar about the Maxxis Minion DHF 3c 29 extolling the virtues of 2.5 over the 2.3…

… but if gravity is the gravy on your riding roast, the 2.5in is unbeatable…

Quite what the tyres are like I have no idea (although they get 4/5 on BR and are outrageously chunky looking) AND Mark T is sporting a close cousin on the front of his G13 at the moment.

But I have to say, Guy Kesteven – just wow, that is definitely my quote of the day…


Look what you get with a Spesh

So clearly Mark T is flush with the joys of owning a new Specialized. So much so he just sent me the above photo – which is apparently what you get with a new Specialized. However, the image does come from a very excellent blog written by Aoife Glass, contributor to Bike Radar titled “5 of the bike industry’s worst sexist marketing fails” which is frankly… just… well… erm… astounding?
