-20F = - 28C

I don't even go out when it's that cold, though I have seen calgary under 35C.

-20F, haha yea that sounds like a likely time to go for a ride. I dont think trial tires need hit that range.

No he didn't in England we spell it Tyre

Good thread and review, I still use the CC and apart from the folding like you say I have no issues with it. I have tried the try-all tyre also but didn't like it as much, not saying it was bad just a personal preference.

I would like to try some others but not sure where to get most from, anyone got a list of retailers?

I went riding out last might, -20C. My CC was rock hard. I tried a rolling side hop between two cracks of sidewalk. My tire had no grip. It slipped on clean concrete... I now have a sprained shoulder, no more riding for two weeks.

CC SUCK

So I'm getting a new tire, and right now I have a CC.

I like the rail grip you were talking about for the try-all, but I'm kind of hesitant cause of what you said about the bounce. I'm pretty light (100 pounds) and since you said it has a stiff rebound, I'm not sure I would be able to get much bounce out of it.

Ive always have a CC but my next tire will be a Luna for sure. Softer which means more bounce IMO....I also really like the tread design...Which makes a softer ride....And are a better Urban trials tire, which I ride urban trials and the odd time ride natural....

So Max I think you should consider a Luna, although you do ride quite a bit of Natural trials I think?

Luna's are heavy, not very good grip, and ok bounce.
I would go for the Monty EG.
