This was meant to be a standalone test and not necessarily a direct comparison to the Minion and HRII. But, since you guys asked, as mentioned in the article, we found cornering traction to be similar to a Minion, even under hard cornering. It's interesting GeorgeWHayduke mentioned the Maxxis catalog rating the Aggressor as slower rolling than the DHF because that wasn't our experience. It was alluded to in the review that it's not the fastest rolling tire we've ridden and not the slowest. Perhaps we could have just said it doesn't roll as fast as a Cross Mark (which we did) but it's not quite as sluggish as a DHFHRII (which we were vague about). One point we did fail to mention and will address here is the climbing traction of the tire. The Aggressor replaced a HRII rear and DHF front, with previously having the bike setup with DHF's front and rear. We found the Aggressor to hold traction better on steep punch sections quite a bit better than either of those tires out back.

Good question! Here's what Deity sent me:

M4 x 0.7P x 8mm and they are dual sided for an allen, so you can unthread them from the back in the event that the pin is damaged. They also come with pre-applied Loctite and include an extra set of pins for back ups!

Our testing was done w/ closed cartridge forks as an additive to the oil in the fork lowers, not the damper oil.

Speculation here but perhaps there is already. Notice the hole next to the internal cable housing, could be a mounting hole for a bumper. Also notice the alloy M16 in front has the integrated bumpers removed and is running standard stanchion mounted ones... hmmmm.

Good call, when measuring 6 inch above and below the center of the kneecap, my legs measure 19 inches above and 16 inches below and the large was spot on for me. Riders within 1 inch either way should be happy with a large too.
