    The 90/100. It's my favourite tyre. Works great in all conditions, very predictable and recovers nicely when the front steps out.

    My bad, my rear got so many punctures at Dewildt that i ran out of those plug string things in one ride. Maybe just bad luck but now only use mousses in the rear. That was back in 2016 if i remember correct when the Starcross came out.

    Other than the name there is nothing soft about that tyre.

    Please talk to me but DO NOT feed me!
    As long as the tyre has a decently stiff sidewall and is not too big (I have found the 120/100 tyres delaminate with Tubliss) it should work ok with Tubliss. Installation must be done exactly as per the instructions or you can have issues. I humbly suggest the Mitas C-18 yellow stripe as a great choice to run with Tubliss. It has been my Tubliss choice for 4 years now. Carcass is tough enough to survive being ridden without air and the tread soft enough to get decent grip in all conditions.

    My last rear was a Starcross 5 Medium with Tubliss, it was the first I have used Tubliss and the 2nd time running a Starcross 5 Medium, to date, it is the best combo I have used so far for the rear....

    That is my life motto. Set the bar low and things can only get better from here on! As bob said. C18 is a good choice however im snobish. 6 Days extreme in normal and soft are amazing and if you dont goon you will easily get 15-20hrs on a tyre.
