I found better traction in tires made for wide rims, even on 'not as wide' rims.. I have 25mm internal enve m70 and got a lot better grip from a 2.5 Wide Trail DHF than the 2.3" DHF.. The WT tires are made for 32-36mm wheels.. But they work better on my 25mm hoops than the 2.3" did.. the 2.3" felt squirrely when leaned over. Was able to drop a little air by going to 2.5" too.

Pop a 2.5 DHF WT and 2.4 DHR2 WT on those wheels and drop your pressures to 22/ 27psi, the'll look massive but you'll have grip for days and won't bounce like a 37psi tire would. Seriously.. it'll be an entirely different experience than what you were running.. those tires aren't made for those wheels..

Hmm.. for a storage tank on the trail, it could be possible to pressurize the down tube, or other parts of the frame... much like the airhog airplanes.. it doesn't weigh much, but could come in handy on the trail. Just fill'er up to 60 PSI for two tires.. ... more »

Nicely executed design and rendering. If your trail/path is long and arduous, lacking tight turns, this would probably get you there faster. A sweet weapon for the "Cross Kansas Trail Classic".

If Spesh got dinged once on this already, this time continued infringement could be costly. Reminds me of the delayed wiper guy.. Glad to hear his IP is protected.

Seat to ass proximity sensor.. Just be sure to deactivate it when you hop off your bike to get on the lift, it'll blow you right off the thing.
