It’s not like I don’t have a lot of hours happily riding a semi-slick on an FS bike (see comments about Rift Zone) or I don’t get the basic premise of transferring braking responsibilities to the front wheel (see comments about 2.8” Vigi / 2.5” G5), it’s just that once I’m lugging a full travel bike up the hill anyways whatever advantage/fun derived from running a S/S on local terrain is lesser to running a full knobby out back. Shore-XC, I’ll take semi-slick everyday. Also, hate to just come out at say “you’re wrong,” but semi-slicks are definitely the most fun on the back of a rigid single speed coming down trails like C*buster and Boogeyman (old exit, of course). My Instagram story expired and I’m a Luddite but I’ll see if I can get a copy of the clip of how fun it is!
