Bike build - Part 5

Tyres

I'm not sure putting tyres on the wheels really counts as being part of the bike build but as it is essential, I thought I'd include it.


I've selected the same tyres and wheels that we have on other bikes and I have some tips, in another article, about fitting them.







All our mountain bike tyres are setup as tubeless.


The Schwalbe, Hans Dampf, tyres need a lot of effort to get them on the rim.


I like Hope Fortus wheels. Their Pro 4 hub just feels and moves as a quality component should. The 26mm rim size suits the 2.35" width tyres that I like to run.
