I was dabbling swapping out my gazz for a lighter 24 x 3.0 hot rod tire. Early impressions after over a total of a little over an hour of riding finds that it is REALLY sensitive to inclines like road crown or even a slight tilt in the sidewalk. Trying to just line up to ride a curb was nothing short of frustrating due to it’s sensitivies.
Is this my lack of experience with this tire, or are tires like this just prone to this kind of reaction? It’s a Kenda Flame tire.
Those who have ridden a Dyno Fireball probably can relate - Dunno.
It foldsover at 17.5 psi doing a 4 foot sidehop. At 19.5 psi, the foldover disappears.
