Gear Shots: Maxxis Minion DHR 2 - Sept. 25, 2013, 10:20 a.m.

This tire is the Maxxis's answer to the Specialized Clutch. I loved the Clutch, Such an aggressive tire in all conditions. The only thing I didn't like is the Clutch didn't have front rolling knobs. The Maxxis DHR Rear II does.

Its cool to see where RF has come from and now where they are going. The product just keeps getting better and better.

Watching all the Digger vids, its cool to see Jerry's riding get smoother and smoother. I guess what this article says to me is it was the bikes……:)

I bet a lot of people can relate to this!

I like the wheels. I rebuilt them to get some spoke prep on the spoke threads. They are basic workhorse wheels that will last a long time.

When you get the bike, sign up for a wheel building course and rebuild them with some spoke prep;)

Hey Dirk

Oil, Grease and Spoke Prep all help the wheel come up to tension without the super loud creaking of the nipple or twisting of the spoke.

All will help with corrosion of the spokes threads, oil will wash off the easiest while grease stays put a bit longer. Spoke prep is good for a long time and also helps keep the spokes tight. It acts like a loctite.

Before I moved to the Shore I always use oil. Coming from the prairies this is all you needed. The first wheel I build for myself once moving to the Shore detention-ed easily on the first ride. Since then I always use spoke prep.
