Strengths: When at High Pressure it rolls super smooth. Very Good grip on off road. when fully inflated, it looks as big as my Highroller 2.5.
Weaknesses: SUPER TACKY!!!! I use this tires from my street rigs to my downhill rigs. Wears off to fast.
Good tires, affordable, valued for money. Different sizes would be a plus point though.. what a waste... But non the less.. If you are in the market to get new tires you might wanna try these blings on for 'size'. You wont regret 'em.

Strengths: Superb on hardpack terrain, fast rolling and very sticky (Super Tacky 42a). Not too heavy, low rolling resistance and high volume gives a plush ride.
Weaknesses: Deep Mud? Would be nice to have a lighter kevlar bead version.
Great for hardpack terrain, dry or (greasy) wet. I'm running the Single ply 2.35 Supertacky on the front and the harder durometer 60a on the back and it give the bike a very stable feel in all situations .. whether descending technical terrain, fast cornering or climbing the loose stuff. The low profile knobs in the centre keep the rolling resistance low, whilst the side knobs are great for off camber singletrack. Climbing and braking performance is great. I've found that I can stay off the brakes and use the sideknobs to rail corners unlike any other tyre I've tried.
Weight is around 760grms for the Supertacky's and about 850grms for the 60a. I'm running these tubeless with Stans. They have about 1mm tire clearance each side of the chainstay on my blur, so very tight ... hence not if you're going to be riding in deep mud!
Just on the mud performance, they drift a little but somehow seem to grip as the side knob engages (if you know what i mean)... so only a marginal weakness...

Strengths: GRIP! Large volume. Looks good. Crazily Sticky.
Weaknesses: prolly wear fast.
This tire sticks like hell. U can really hear it. Its like the sound of a vans shoe. Its cushy and comfy and takes hits. Not to mantion ultra cheap. I hav the 60A compound so i guess it won really wear as fast but still sticky as hell! Buy it!! Its cheap too ^^

Strengths: Snot to a hanky is an apt description. These are the best Moab tires I've used so far. Low center knobs lessen the rolling resistance, and the larger side knobs help get thru the sand. The 42 durometer compound allows you to climb or descend an almost verticle surface. They stick so well they probably save me from sliding into several nasty situations. Those familiar with the Toilet Bowl should try it with these tires.
Weaknesses: Not the best choice for muddy conditions. Even though the knobs are widely spaced the rubber compound seems to hold mud moreso than a harder compound.
Buy this tire. Put it on your new Quasi. Go to Moab!

Strengths: great traction on hardpack, concrete, tarmac, wet or dry. wide at 2.35 and adds cushioning on my hardtail. sticky, sticky, stikcy.
Weaknesses: low center knobs give them no bite in mud. only 6 months of weekend rides and the low center knobs are almost gone (it's the soft rubber, i know).
these are great tires for the intended purpose. beats the hell out of any xc or trail tire i've ever used. if you see them, buy them, steal them, beg for them. you just gotta have a pair of these. 5 hairy turds all around.

Anyone using an MRP Bling Ring with their Rohloff? I'm curious if you would have to run it backwards to get chainline to line up decently as it it is supposed to put the ring in middle ring position by design.Read More »
This is the place to show off those flashy rigs or individual parts. I would also like to compile a list of companies that make some nice bike bling. It just so happens that some of these parts are pretty high end too.
Some companies to start it off...
