some shoe-goo and rectangle foam and I can run my own pedals. JK cool idea.

The Good: As long as the bead is FOLDING they set up nicely tubeless, weather or not the tire is tubeless specific. Long wear life. Handle rocky conditions well without getting tread rips or sidewall damage. Come in a gumwall. Lot of volume. Predictable drifting in corners if you can't hold your line because you came in too hot.
The Bad: The really don't have a BAD point.
This is a great all around tire. I have a big list of positives I've listed and can't find a weakness. I'm riding Utah with sharp rocks and square edges and the 2.4 is on every bike from single speed rigid to Transition Covert 140mm FS. The knobs roll well, off road hook up is perfect. I'll go through a set every 700 miles and then they are some really nice handmedowns to my buddies. One additional bonus for the weight weenie is that they are fairly light for a tire that can take some serious punishment at 695-805 gram depending on the model. I've used the IKON and don't feel that the extra money is worth it. Maxxis is my brand. This review is only for the 29x2.4

It is a job. Your sponsor just put up a four day travel plan and your job is to ride it. Sure it may look dumb but it is time to get to work and make it look fun and steezy.

great looking build. I like the idea of the bike of the day being something a couple years old with some new parts to freshen it up. Great call Vital.

That was some good riding. I like to see the almost OTB parts. Solid riding for a test...POV always makes it look smoother than real life. That test right there counts in my book.

That's why you take your dog riding. Dog confronts bear while I keep riding and they work it out.

there have been a couple of failed attempts at this in years past. I wish them luck but just don't see myself leaving Shimano with their multi-release cleat, adjustable spring tension and light weight. Pacific has a bunch of brands that might consider ... more »
