I will buy that 26x3 gazzy when you are done for sure.
I have another brand new, unused one still. Was a steal-$85 each from eBay. I didn't need them at the time (was still waiting on a 26" Large Marge wheel build) but bought them on an impulse anyway. They're still out there every now and then, you just have to jump on it when you find them. I tell you, those Finns know their stuff-for a snow tire, eat sure eats up rocky-assed downhill sections when run at 16psi or so, without a suspension fork. Blows away the considerably heavier Duro Razorbacks-waaaaay better cornering confidence window on pretty much every surface I've ridden on.bighit said:I will buy that 26x3 gazzy when you are done for sure.
Hmm, you and I must have different riding styles then. I haven't crashed yet… YET! :eekster: I do a lot of bombing runs downhill on rock garden type stuff, in pretty much all weather conditions (mostly dry/loose/gravelly stuff). My days are numbered?Borgschulze said:Gazzaloddi's are garbage on loose over hardpack, I've got scars to prove it.
Anything else, they're awesome though.
Spongy indeed, squishy to the touch when grabbed with a firm hand. The most beautiful thing about them is how quickly they shed mud (sort of a "self-cleaning" feature).Borgschulze said:I blame my crash mostly on a Totem Solo Air fork... not very small bump sensitive.
I used the 2.6 Gazzaloddi, which I don't think comes in a soft compound, your 3.0 is probably quite a soft compound?
Hard tire + hard dirt = fail.
