Strengths:    Great traction on in everything it's recommended for.
80 PSI rating makes it roll really fast.
It sounds mean!

Weaknesses:    Slide easily on metal skatepark surfaces (most tires do)

Bottom Line:   
I have used these tires for about a year now and they have held up amazingly well. I've been riding skate park on a daily basis and have had few problems with traction. These tires will grip most surfaces well which makes it a good choice for street riding too. It's a good idea to stay away from water with them though. Wet grass/leaves/skate parks will take the wheels out from under you pretty quick.

Also, if you're into lightweight, these tires are pretty light. I have the Team Issue which weighs in at 630g (170g lighter than the Maxxis Holy Roller)

Overall these are a very quality tire. Great skate park/street/dirt jump tire. It's 80 PSI rating makes it roll fast and it grips well.

I am pretty confident that the axle itself is secure and correctly adjusted in the hub. There seems to be quite a bit of play between the axle endcaps and the dropoouts and a little bi ...

For Sale or Trade: Carbine/Tracer 2 275 G1 conversion dropouts

I have moved from my converted Tracer 2 to a Tracer 275 so I have the G1 275 conversion dropouts and 275 brake adaptors available from my T2 if anyone wants them to convert their Carbine or T2 to 275. I loved the conversion but have moved on to the Tracer 275 frame which uses the standard spec G1 d ... Read More »

Upgrade from a Gary Fisher G1 frame?

Am currently sporting an '07 Gary Fisher X-Cal 29er which has served me quite well. Specs include a Reba Fork, Hayes Stoker hydros, 3x9 SRAM x7 drivetrain. Aside from the crappy front shifting on the Bontrager triple crankset, it has been a pretty solid unit. Have been toying with the idea of ... Read More »
