Would you think this scars would count as diggable? Would I be a chic magnet on the trails? or only battle scars count? darn, I think I can always say I got them on a fall or something....

your scar photos are almost as good quality and quantity as Warp's 432 photos of his wheels floating around mtbr

Why did you get the scars ?~? Are you ok ?~? Will you ride dirt again this year ?~?

Okay, I had some lipomas, which are some grease buildups that grow under the skin. So they have to open up and remove it, and then sew the skin back up. Actually, the doctor removed 11 lipomas, so I had a lot of shots!

I really hope to hit the dirt soon. Probably this weekend I'll do city, and hopefully next week I'll do some dirt, but I will see how I feel. I haven't really ridden my Moto Lite in a long while :mad: I have it pretty blingy and set up right, but it's gathering dust and spiderwebs.....

Well, thanks for the post :D

All the best getting back in the saddle :thumbsup:

yeah your bike is schmicko blingo in waiting :cool:


I am riding less (winter here in tassie) but spending more money on my ML :madman:

The less I ride the more I want to buy. The more I ride the less I want to buy. Go figure.

Anyways, I am just sitting, eating, and gaining weight. Poor fat me.

Treat yourself to new tyres. You deserve it.

Any thoughts of what you want to try / get ?~?

Not sure yet. Some are, in no special order:

Hutch Spiders
Conti Verticals
Specialized Resolutions
Geax Sturdy
Geax Poco Loco
Maxxis High Rollers

I'm really not sure, I like my Nevegals, but I would like to try a faster rolling tire for the rear.

Hutch Spiders - As slow or maybe marginally faster.
Conti Verticals - mmmhhh ... aah... Don't know, never made it to my list.
Specialized Resolutions - They break loose on loose over hardpack and simply do not have as much traction as the Neve. It is indeed faster, but it's a much better steering tyre than a rear. Not much braking traction.
Geax Sturdy - Am can comment on that one.
Geax Poco Loco Lobo Loco?? Eddie Jones can comment on that one
Maxxis High Rollers - Mada can comment on that. The 2.35" weighs as a 2.35" Kenda but is like a 2.1" Kenda in size. Mada says they slip bad on wet.

Roberto, you will not notice the difference of weight or performance... no need to change tires as your Nevegals are pretty much a good all-arounder...

Instead give that money to me :p

All take this opportunity to respond before tyre fetish Warp sees this :D :D :D

here is my expert opinion which is most likely entirely unreliable:

Scratch off Resolutions for the back

High Rollers like woodwork and some wet but roll on the slow side

I like my Geax Sturdy's and think it's terrific on the back and roll faster than you think, the are very slippery on wet wood and don't grab as good as they should on small boulders (these have stayed the longest on my bike so far, of any tyre on any bike and overall really enjoy them)

The Lobo Loco looks real good and I would like to try one sometime, but if you ride road I think the the Sturdy will roll better and penetrate better in somewhat loose soil.

Conti Verticals... seem like a good alrounder for the back.... never tried them but appear similiar to the ignitor's which I liked for XC stuff but wish was bigger volume

Spiders.... all pass but Warp won't
