Video: Joe Barnes Gets Sideways in Highland Loam

Mar 18, 2021
by Joe Barnes  

Joe and his mate Ferg live on a highland housing estate in Scotland and behind the houses is a prime piece of land for a wee rut track. Spring is the time to choose the line and get it tested ready for the summer evening rides to roll in. Here we have a build and ride video of the boys in action.

 I really love Joe Barne's videos and Joe Barnes himself but why doesn't he use any proper tyres to do such things?
I've recently discovered how the Schwalbe's Dirty Dan does grips in loamy/slippery conditions. This tyre is really unbeatable to push the limits in such cases... unless you like to mess it up on purpose Wink

 Hey Chief. I have got some Dirty Dan tyres on the bike at the moment. I cut the nobs down a little bit so they pedal about a bit better and you can also ride on hard pack as well. For loam and mud there is no other tyre.

 Why is it called the Highlands when it is just above sea level?

 The highlands are up north - north is higher right....?

 Maybe because the highest point in the UK comes straight out that sea loch.
