    Strengths:    Strength, grip, looks, durability, sound, pretty much eveything you want and expect in a high quality mountain bike tire.

    Weaknesses:    absoloutly none

    Bottom Line:   
    These tires came stock with my old Trek Jack 1 and they lasted 5 years, which is almost impossible because I rode them through literally everything from downhill to trails and lots of just pavment riding. They looked great, had amazing grip on all surfaces including snow, lasted forever and as a bonus they sounded really cool when you got up to higher speeds.

    Strengths:    Responsive handling especially in low pressure; knobs gives a weird feel in high speed; great for high speed cornering

    Weaknesses:    none so far..

    Bottom Line:   
    Just got started in this field, so far this tyres never fail to deliver. Made a few jumps in stairs and benches, this tyre might be too soft for DH, best for DJ or AM.

    Batchelor/Earl's?

    Anybody know the trail conditions at Batchelor/Earl's? I rode Sawmill last weekend and it was mostly foot-printed snow and ice. The snow was firm enough to ride on (fatbike) but the footprints were so bumpy to render it un-rideable. I imagine the entrances to Batch/Earls would be similar; wonder ... Read More »

    Coworker's been raving about the buffet in Pennsylvania called Shady Maple so I'm thinking of making a visit, but going just that distance just for food seems a bit much so I'm wondering if anyone knows of trails nearby.
