Another Pro-Tip: Consider the layers of Gorilla Tape around the valve hole, imagine how thick and heavy the tape is when layered. If you start 1" away from the hole, wrap twice, and end 1" past the hole in the other direction... You now have 3 layers of tape around the valve hole. Coupled with the weight of the valve stem, you now have enough weight in that one spot to throw off the rotational balance enough where you can feel your wheels wobble in the air. This also creates a thickness difference in the tape and how the tire will sit against the rim, directly at the valve stem. To help counter-act these effects, I start my wrap at 180 degrees opposing the valve stem, 2 full wraps and end the second wrap directly at the position where I started. This gives you a nice uniform wrap with no bulges or weight imbalance, while still retaining a full 2 layers over all of the holes.

I can't even take the rest of this article seriously after your Moab introduction. So lets look into my crystal ball... You decided to pedal the whole Porcupine loop instead of paying for a shuttle = amateur. Based on your dehydration, I can assume you brought maybe a couple water bottles...more

Bike. Motor. = Motorbike

Should have all the rules attached that any other motorized vehicle has. They DO NOT belong on non-motorized trails. Period.

In the video, he describes that the 150 and 170 WILL be available in the 30.9 diameter. That's the key!

If it has a motor, electric or any other type, it should be considered a motorbike and subject to trail limitations. Period. Same thing with riding E-bikes or "power-assist" bikes on roadways. License them like any other motorized vehicle. Problem solved. ... more ยป

Yep, judges have favorites. Favorite riders, favorite lines, etc... If you're not one of their fav riders on one of their fav lines, you might as well not even ride.
