Another trip out on the 456 tonight, this time with Conti Diesel tyres fitted instead of the Nokian NBXs I’ve been running for a while. Despite being heavier tyres, and having DH tubes inside, the Diesels roll better than the NBXs and don’t seem to grip any worse. They feel a lot more stable as well which is nice.
I did the usual Uni route but missed out Shepherds Walk, or The Path of Pain as I like to call it now. I still managed to ride into a tree later on so it wasn’t all plain sailing.
I’m now waiting for my toes to defrost before I have a shower.
