Best all rounder front tyre

Thanks for all the info guys, cornering is still my nemisis, I love jumps but I tend to drag my rear brake a little through berms…First time I rode at a bike park and on berms I fell from the top of a large berm and broke my Scaphoid and I have always been wary. Trails like Aline and Dirt merchant with nice large berms I am ok on but down here in Colorado there are much tighter and smaller berms so I go through a lot of rear brakes.

Yeah I figured there was no DHF II, the DHF and DHR are not tubeless ready while the DHR II is SO any reason not to go DHR II front and rear on 819 rims with some stans?

I am curious about this as well. Has anyone tried running the DHR II on the front?

LB rims- how long??

So I was looking through my past emails. It has been 110 days since Nancy told me the lead time was 20 -25 days and she has now offered me 28h rim which would mean buying a new hub or 650Brim for my 26 replacement….thank god I have been able to ride mine with a tube even though it has a crack.

New Bike Rack - NSR4 or Hang5

I saw a recon rack down here in Colorado the other day. It is about the nearest thing I have seen to my Arbutus rack. They make them in 4, 5 or 6. I forget how much the Arbutus was but I don't think the 4 bike rack is that more expensive at Recon.

It has been another Month and now Nancy is not even responding to emails. She had said they would ship out in a month. In total I have been waiting since March 21st or so.

mine just shipped. Mishtar why were yours warrantied?

Just my rear, I cracked it riding in Moab, was just on single track and a rock hit the side and put stress cracks in it and it will not hold air if I am tubeless now. They are pretty good about things like that and so I am just paying for the shipping.

I ordered my replacement rim mid March as a warranty replacement and she is still saying it won't ship for a few weeks……

I think 2 cost me $380 including the shipping. They - the 19% vat before you check out once you list Canada as the shipping destination it does that for you.

9-10 speed derailer adapters

I am confused, I am running a xt Shadow + with a 9 speed cassette and a XO 9 speed shifter and I have had no issues in about 8 rides. Why would I need a spacer if it works with out one? Am I missing something?

need a new pack!

I have the Osprey viper 14 and it can fit a full face and is a great pack, worth checking out if you do not have your mind set 100% on an evoc pack.

NSMB - 2013 - DH/FR Build thread

Tailgate cover

A cheap fix to ensure you will not get any dents at all is go to walmart and pick up one of those kids foam water noodles. Use a knife and slice it down one side then just put that on the back of the truck tail gate before you put down the tailgate cover. Will cost you about $5 and will give a ton more protection then just the cover by itself.
