Re: Big Bike Rally Challenge

mefo mx master is really good, but to be perfectly honest when it's so muddy on a heavy bike I suspect anything will be a struggle really..maybe try 20 psi first? you could do worse than have a chat to gwyn at treleborg tyres. he runs an HP2 and My 630 is shod with tyres from him (mitas ef07) and t...

Since this is my back garden I probably ought to join you but you always pick the dates of the rallies ;). So I can't. Could give you some routes though, haven't checked them all, but you can let me know what they're like.

Re: Tire repair CO2 cylinders...

Yep, I use them, beats carrying a compressor. Normally I carry a small bike pump just for finding holes in the tube to avoid wasting a cylinder.

Re: Advice needed for China

Unless things have changed recently I believe you must have a guide, and I think you have to register the bike in china too. When I last looked at it, it looked like more trouble than it was worth.

Re: HD inner tubes

The 4.50 is the width in inches. I'm running 130 tyres on a 4.5" rim so would have thought 4.5" tube should be ok.
