Ok, who is going and how long are you staying?

What tires are you using?

I'm in, I will be securing an undisclosed site early next week and staying until the following Tuesday after the event.

Rolling Hans Dampf 29er tires. Trailstar compound front and Pacestar rear. Wicked gobs of stick and grip! First time to D'ville with the Bandit Two9. While I'm not going as far as claiming that my ride is "Best for D'ville", I strongly suspect that it will be very good. Got to get in a few more hours breaking in that Pushed RC3+ rear shock...

Heading up on the 7th and heading back on the 9th...

..and as for tires, not sure. I have a wtb Stout with FR casing on the front and a spesh Eskar on the rear. Slightly worried about the sidewalls in the rear, but not sure if I'm worried enough to get new tires before this.

Robert and I are rolling very early Friday morning. Mark D is following us I believe. We hope to ride and do that Buttes climb on Friday.

I don't know what bikes we're riding but I have sweet Schwalbe Hans Dampf tires.

Not going due to son's graduation. Kinda bitter about it. :meh:

If I was going I'd be riding some DH tires, not some extra-wide roadie tires on 700c wheels.

I'm in after all, but coming up with the family so will be staying in town. Driving up Fri and staying til Sun, am hoping to ride with some groups Fri afternoon and Sat morning.
Any rides organized yet? I could contribute a vehicle to shuttling Mills Peak on Sat, but can't take all day for it.
Hans Dampf on the front, but probably switching back to a High Roller on the rear. The Schwalbe on the rear is too noodley for my taste.

Richelle, my 4-year old daughter, and myself. Arriving Thursday afternoon and staying through to Monday. Finally. Coming home Sunday sucks.

I'll be rolling on black tires with some tread. Hopefully without tubes.

I'll be staying in town all week with my family. Looking forward to some fun group rides, although someone will need to shoot off a flare gun about an hour and a half before the group rides depart so I know when to leave for Packer.

I'll be rolling a nano raptor rear and small block 8 front at 50 psi to minimize rolling resistance.

Ed, don't break the pencil (weird metaphor of mine), but if it's feasible, you know it will be worth it. I've done plenty of 24 hour vacations and they're a whole lot more rewarding than fixing that damn sprinkler problem in the flower bed. Or so I've heard.

I'm heading up Thursday afternoon. I should be there before sundown. I just need a site to crash at, which shouldn't be a problem from what I hear. I'm heading home Sunday.

Maxxis Highrollers for me. Looking forward to meeting some of you!

Even and I will be there on either Thursday night late or Friday morning. Staying until Sunday in campsite #15. Riding bikes with black round tires. Having fun, getting tired, eating food, socializing, and drinking good beer. Can't wait to see y'all!

I'm coming, not 100% firm on which days yet but aiming for the full Thursday through Monday experience.I need carpool buddies from Orange County, anybody here want to ride-share?

I need to put at least one new tire on my bike, so I'm hoping to learn what's appropriate from this thread, blocky like the Hans Dampf seems to be the consensus.
