F$ck you tyre

Not fire...a fan forced electric oven so you have better control over the heat. Better still a commercial combi oven so you can ensure they stay moist.

I had a similar experience with some achwalbe tyres a long time back. I sold them on here to @Plankosaurus or @DMan, I can't remember.
those schwalbe's are ace, no complaints here. maybe the old stans flow's are just an easier wheel to work with? or maybe i'm just incredibly strong. and skilled. and handsome. and modest.

I think you are correct. Stan had nothing to do with it.

Fuck Stan, Schwalbe bike park tyres are like crocodile skin, 1500g tanks and grippy as all shit.

Wire bead and 13euros a tyre. Was lovin it for my boys.

Something that I find works well, depending on tyre and rim, is brushing the rim with soapy water, and sometimes rubbing the tyre bead with a bar of soap. This usually provides just enough 'lube' to get a tyre on. Don't put the sealant in before attempting to get the bead of the tyre on properly.
once the tyre is properly seated, let out the pressure and remove the valve core, then draw up the right amount of sealant into a stan's syringe, and inject it via the valve into the tyre, clean the inside of the valve, and replace the core. now inflate to desired pressure.
I've just used sealant as lube, especially as it gets everywhere anyway after adding sealant straight into the tyre before pushing on the last bit of bead.

What's the ride report on them? I'm a massive fan of the Der Kaiser/Der Baron combo on the Orange.
I'm not going to rave just yet as I've only done 20km but they are feeling at least as good as DD MaxxGrip Assegais.
The Mazzas are pingy as they are 4C, not a soft ride but still really grippy on the sides, just twangy on the hard centre knobs.
With a motor involved, I can afford soft compound on the rolling knobs.

Don't rub it in, the tyres are now one with the rim, they aint ever coming off!
ride them till you hit the cord
have never had an easy time with contis, the closest I got was a set of Diesel's in 26X2.5 on my HT a couple of years back, but even them needed silicone spray on the rims to slide on up

Mine were nice and easy to get on the WTB rims on the Orange. The last 28mm Schwobble tubeless tyres I put on the roadie however... :confused:

Continental have stolen my money plenty of times. They always look like great tread patterns and the rubber feels so nice, but...time after time I have had the side way give out very quickly.

I can assure you the side wall on these fuckers is like crocodile skin. Makes other brands feel like a tube.

Does that mean you're not a fan of the Mazzas?

I am, got them on my Deviate. A fast tyre with a surprising amount of grip.

I'm sure you understand the stand off between rolling resistance and grip ? The Mazzas have 4C and are fast, yet grippy.

Next level up are MaxxGrip DD/DH and these Supersoft DH. Grip for days, soft compound and croc skin sidewalls, a 1300-1500g tyre in soft compound feels like shit when you are chasing mates on trails. It really does feel like riding over foam, energy zapping effort to get anywhere.

Stick a motor on it and I can still bounce off the 25kph limiter with these going up hill.

Mazzas are a great tyre, a very good happy medium choice and I'll continue to run them on my regular bike.

Ah good as these are my tyre of choice (and the Martello rear) for the next round of fresh rubber!
