I was going to order the X king but they worked out too expensive with the Black Chilli compound. I ended up going for the Maxxis Ardent 2.25 60a 60TPI as I found them for only £21 each delivered.

PS I've spent far too much on the bike already this month

I liked the Ardents but i think the 60a's will be a fast tyre but a tad hard.

Don't tell me that haha!! It'll be alright I'll just make the suspension that little bit plusher. I love my full suspension now. No more getting off at stairs no matter how big or steep just point and peddle. Love it. Had a great cycle the other day Cheshunt to Camden Lock.

They are tripple compound ones Jamie, not 60a's but saying that i believe that tread pattern works really well anyway.

I think the Maxxis Aspen is a great fast rolling tyre for fireroads and tarmac, and is still really grippy. Fantastic tyre.

I have a set of these on the Marin and they are great on fireroads and roll very well on tarmac.

However they do struggle on tree roots. Nice rear wheel spins last night.
