I hate the Bontager Jones ACX tires on my new HKEK
They came stock on my Gary Fisher Hoo Koo E Koo. They slip out from underneath me very often on wet surfaces and I fell twice when they seemed to get stuck in small ruts that never seemed to bother the tires on my old comfort bike. I dont feel confident doing any quick turns with these tires. It wierd because with the offset knobs on them they look like they would be great for traction. I might buy less aggressive tires and get better speed out of the bike. Any suggestions?
I mainly use the bike on hard packed nature trails and gravel roads. I also do some paved road riding to get to the trails. These tires call for a max of 60 lbs of air but I am running 40 lbs at this time. I am not a really agressive rider but on occasion I like to go off the beaten path and do some climbing. I believe you are correct that for most of the time, an all around tire would fit my needs more.
