Agreed on their sizing. Have gotten much better since they came out with 2.4s and such. Measurement is from a Rekon+ that is set up tubeless, been sitting on the shop floor at 20-30psi for close to a month now. Had it sitting next to a Mojo 3 with 2.8 schwalbe nics. The difference surprised me, so...more

Good to know. I wonder if the 5mm of rim width makes a significant difference on those tires.

With regards to actual tire sizes, I've measured a lot of them and am curious about your Maxxis 2.8 measurement.
On 40mm inner width rims, after at least 24 hours of stretching, and measured at 20 psi with an inner tube, I measured 2.70" and 2.67" on two different Maxxis 27.5 x 2.8 tires. They have a tolerance on sizing, and tend to come in a little undersized, but 2.55" is pretty far off. Were your measurements immediate upon install, or at a low pressure? Not saying you're wrong, just curious of the details.

The Maxxis 27.5 x 2.6 tires I have measured on i35 rims were 2.50" and 2.52", measured at 30psi with an inner tube, after about 24 hours of stretching.


I do agree that more accurate tire labeling would be nice. To their credit, Maxxis is a lot better than they used to be. Those 2.8's are the farthest from true sizing I have seen from them on any semi recent design.

In general, I prefer 1 day formats due to the vacation time issue mentioned. Otherwise, people with more time off get an advantage by showing up to practice on Thursday, easy practice on Friday, and then they're more fresh for racing. However, it's still ... more »

^^^ This. If Hill doesn't make it to World Champs, that sucks, and it would seem like the end of an era. But, keep in mind, bumping the "next Sam Hill" from the World's team to let somebody else in that hasn't been performing as well doesn't make sense. ... more »

It's all done, the only thing holding it up is that the 3D frame printer is broken at the moment.
