Notices
Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

NEW TIRE- Clement Xplor MSO 50mm size

I use the 40mm 120TPI version of the MSO tire and absolutely love it. Ive only used 3 tires on gravel bikes, so admittedly a small sample size, but I also figured I wouldnt look around since the 120tpi 40mm MSO offers what I want.

So a Raleigh bike(forget which) was spec'd with a 50mm tire called an LZY(i think) and it couldnt be found elsewhere online. Ends up Clement renamed it since it uses the MSO tread pattern.

The 60tpi version can be found here- Clément X'Plor MSO 700x50 - Black Mountain Cycles

I figured I would mention this because a quick google didnt bring much(anything?) up about the 50mm MSO tire- neither info about it or for sale sites.
Just happened to come across it while scanning thru the last couple months of blog postings by Black Mountain Cycles.

50mm MSO could be a whole lot of fun.

The stuntman is spec'd with the LXV (raleigh's typo LZY), but mine came with the 50c MSO.

I've also seen posts of a 650b x 50 MSO though no actual pictures: https://www.universalcycles.com/shop...s.php?id=86493

I'd definitely be interested in those.

I can't say anything bad, although I only rode them about 25 miles on some pavement and dirt/gravel and I don't have anything to compare with other than my Michelin Pro 4Es on my road bike. They are far superior to the P4Es on the dirt/gravel and are sluggish on the pavement as expected, but do roll pretty smoothly.

I do look forward to many more miles with them setup tubeless.
