Hay

I was looking at some bike pictures and saw lots of bikes with a slick rear tyre and i was like :unsure: How do you get them like that and what are the reasons why you would do them like that?

Could anyone help??

Thanks

:D

Hacksaws easiest and fastest, like a big one... Thats how I did mine.

If your on street and don't need to shed mud then its an easy way to get a slick wide tyre.

Only do it with a dead tyre though, don't go wasting good money on a scrubbed tyre.

It may be worth saving one side if you like your sidehops and rely upon a lot of grip from the edge tread to hold you on the wall.

I remember Matt Bird doing this, only that when he fixed a puncture he put his tyre round the wrong way and couldn't sidehop as high due to lack of grip.
