2. Currently have stock RP23 shock - Cane Creek Double Barrel Air (you have to dream right?) Or shall I wait for a Turner bike with 165mm of rear travel to be released and splash out for the CCDB then? :cool:
3. Currently have Thomson seatpost– upgrade to Reverb dropper post (stealth??)

hans dampf

I wore out a pair of Hans Dampfs in about 60 miles, side and center knobs tearing off. They are nice riding tires though. They are on a Nomad and the trails were not overkill for the bike by any means.

I have been using Nobby Niks and really liking them and thought the HD's would be a better AM tyre as the NN's sidewalls are too light. I was considering conti rubber queens (Trail Kings) that was until I heard good things about the HD's, apart from the short wearing times.

The Rubber Queens have huge volume, seem to last pretty well, roll nice, and grip well.

I've liked the Hans Dampf I've been running the past 3.5 months. I've got prolly 800-900 miles on them and the rear is definitely pretty worn. The front still looks pretty good though. For the price I'd like to see them last a bit longer.... but other than that, they're the best big volume, trail/am tire I've ever used.
