Wrong Tyre Choice…a COC up

Folllowing the rear mech failure on Saturday the COC ran into some difficulty straight away. ¬† The wheel fitted to his hard tail replacement ,while spinning nicely in the bike stand ran into some difficulty when subjected to the slight weight of the fine physical specimen ¬†that is the COC. Some tyre wall ¬†deformiity ( probably faulty ) caused the tyre to rub on the chainstays and forced abandonment . But not for long …as the others , PS , Davy ,Owen and John headed to Fallow loop , the COC raced home and grabbing the first wheel he could , unfortunately a 720 C with a cyclocross tyre , lashed after the group to meet at the bridge in Fallow . The wheel in question while speedy on the climbs was interesting on rocky trails and considerable skill was required to avoid a pinch as Davy led at a ferocious pace across to red bog / yellow water.

So why have a 26er , a 650B or even a 29er when you can have a 26/720er .
