    So you've just bought your first mountain bike and are hooked on the sport. Like many riders, you may have the urge to upgrade accessories and components. As you're probably well aware, mountain biking can be an expensive sport, but it doesn't always have to be. A few key upgrades have an...

    Hello, I got a brand new 29er and am running tubeless for the first time. Also new to Presta valves. I'm finding that I need to verify my tire pressure and top off before each and every ride, even if rides are as little as 7 days apart (bike stored in insulated garage). Is this normal? I...

    My Nates wore out last year. I managed to scrounge a new pair of Knards (26 x 3.8) last Spring, and it's really time to take them off for the snow season. My LBS has nothing at all in stock - and says the tire situation for him has been just at zero for 2 years now. I've asked before, but I...

    Anyone done so? An example being going from 2.6 to 2.3 — or perhaps even more drastic. I've had other discussions around this and just got a "narrower" tire / rim bike in a Cannondale Trail SE 2 2021. I've spent a little time on wider tires, so I'm getting used to this. For context, I'm mainly...

    I had been riding my new bike for about a month, but I left my dorm for Thanksgiving break. When I get back I open my door to proudly show my dad my new bike, but I find this. What do yall think caused this and might it be covered under warranty? Also any good low rolling resistance front...

    I switched from a Sb 140 to sb 130 yeti lunch ride and I love the bike I just haven't been able to find the perfect tire combo and I do not think I am good enough to really decide what I like so I am looking for recommendations. I tried the stock setup and I popped those quickly and the...

    Maxxis is celebrating 20 years of the Minion! The venerable Minion tread pattern has remained basically unchanged from factory rider Colin Bailey's original design (other than scaling knobs for different sizes) since 2001, an impressive feat in this industry. Over 20 years, the Minion DHF-and...

    Hello folks! I've got a pretty old (I cannot remember exactly how old, but ~10 years?) set of Kenda Nevegal Stick-E tires on my bike (26 x 2.35). I was changing a tube today and when I took a closer look at the tires realized that they are pretty worn so I thought I should replace them. The...

    Hey everyone, so I'm going lift-access mountain biking for the first time on Sunday. I consider myself to be an intermediate rider. I'll be taking my 26er '08 Giant Trance X0 to Highland Bike Park in NH this weekend and am wondering if the tires I currently have on the bike will fare well on the...

  12. Beginner's Corner
    Hey everyone I’m very new to the sport and I have 26x2.35 tires on my MTB and I’m having trouble finding that size at a decent price. Is there anyway I can go down a size to maybe a 26x1.95? Thank you to anyone who can help!

    Tubolito has made a name for itself by developing TPU inner tubes that are lighter and more puncture-resistant than traditional rubber tubes. The tradeoff for these strong and light tubes is a hefty price tag. The company's road and mountain tubes retail for $34.90 for the standard tubes and...

    Hello! I've just made myself a treat and ordered a XC bike (Exceed CF) from Canyon, which is seemingly a well known brand here in Europe. I'm completely new to the MTB world and was only riding road bikes up until now. So I have just a couple of questions, if you don't mind: - The bike will...

    Hi! Thinking about tread design/pattern, I was trying to figure out the effects of laterally non-staggered center knobs vs staggered. In my mind, laterally non-lined-up (or staggered) would let the side knobs dig better into the dirt and be more predictable because the side knobs wouldn't be...

    Talk all you want about the benefits of upgrading wheels, brakes, or even your bike's entire drivetrain. But pound for pound (or gram for gram in this case), there is no better bang-for-buck upgrade than new mountain bike tires. After all, that spinning rubber is the only thing on your bike that...
