mavic deemax nipple wrench

Hallo! i bought the nipple wrench 1635/2p and it doesn't match my mavic deemax wheels (2011 or 2012, can't recall)

The original mavic wrench that came with the wheels, has this label:

"PAA GF50 no 1" and also has a number next to it: 11

Which is the correct nipple wrench?

Thank you!

CCDB coil - HSC

I have a yt tues 2012, the LR chart is this:

Very progressive, with a low starting LR and a very very low ending LR.

At sag (30%) the LR is ~2.65.

Cane creek proposes for this frame 2.5 turns for HSC, which i find really high.

For reference, santa cruz v10 has this LR chart

at sag (30%) the LR is ~3.45 and cane creek proposes just 1 (one!!!) turn of HSC!!!

I can't find any logic in this.

Now i have 1.5 turn of HSC in my tues, and i find that in heavy sudden hits (big rocks and roots), that the rear suspension is kicking, so that my feet lose momentary the contact with the pedals.

My spring rate is ok, and the rebound settings are ok too. The LSC is also quite low at 10 clicks from supple.

Should i lower the HSC to 0.5-0.75 turn, or do you think it will be too low?

Re: vittoria morsa

i read that on wet rocks and roots, it grips really well cause of the graphene.

The minus is that, cause of the shallower middle tread, it does not grip/break well in loam and mud. 

None the less, which tyre does decently well in loam/mud except for mud spikes...

vittoria morsa

Has anyone ridden this tyre? (2.3 TNT graphene compound)

I consider it for rear use, all year round (don't like changing tyres according to soil conditions)

-How is the grip in dry?

-How is the grip in wet?

-Braking?

-Rolling resistance?

-Durability?

How does it compare to the maxxis aggressor?
