This morning has been a whirlwind of emotions. Trying to fight back tears and sadness, while simultaneously laughing at some of the adventures and stories. Kelly was an amazing person and I'm fortunate enough to have known him for a number of years.

One of the Kelly memories that came up this morning was from 2011...more

Indeed, the Minion DHF is the best all-conditions mountain bike tire of all time. Maybe you were riding the 2.3" 650b tire in a hard compound, or some other weird iteration? Because I agree, that tire sucks.

Well I'm sure you have your own reasons, and good ones also, but the DHF is the single best mountain bike tire produced to date. Some may come close, but it's still the king. And I'd go as far as to say your statement is about as misleading as there is about the DHF: the DHF is really...more

I've put a length of foam pipe insulation across the top of my tailgate for every pad I've run. Easiest way to get some extra padding.

Yeah, I tried that configuration as well, but didn't like how you lost the ability to strap the frames down. As you can see from the other comments it's probably best to always use the straps to prevent any stray rubbing. I never experienced any wear on the frames, but again,...more

Love this pad, except I can't totally agree on it's design idea. I rotated mine slightly backwards so the foam blocks are on top of my tailgate. This allows the downtube of the bike to sit in the space between them, but the velcro strap then moves to the back of the tailgate, and isn't exactly usefull for holding the down tube of your frame. I can use the straps around a fork stantion kind of...

Those of you that are wearing the bottom of your downtube out, try my method!
