Folks,

I have recently bought a Beta Alp 4.0 which has a virtually new looking Michelin Enduro Competition MK6 road legal tyre on the rear but the front tyre needs replacing.

Now, I normally ride with Michelin or Pirelli road legal 'e' marked trials tyres and I have no experience of this type of rear tyre (nor even of riding the Beta yet :shock: ), do any of you out there have such experience and would you recommend simply fitting a corresponding replacement front tyre; replace both with the Michelin trials tyres or something else :?:

I currently typically bumble along in the Peak District on my Serow but the Alp was bought with the idea of riding further afield such Yorkshire and North Wales where I think the current rear tyre might be more suitable.

TTFN

Hugh.

I would use a comp 6 as they wear to quickly with road use, go for the comp 4 instead.

I use the 6 for enduros and the 4 for trail riding.

Hi Hugh,
That is a great rear tyre; although it wont last long.

Current favourites, amongst many, seem to be Maxis IT rears, and Enduro fronts. Much cheaper than Michelin too.

Thanks and based upon your advice folks I have ordered a Michelin Enduro Comp IV. Only practice and time will tell how I get on with them, being used to Michelin & Pirelli trials tyres in the past.

Pirelli MT21 is a good allrounder and original Beta Alp4 fitment
