alright wentz is on the road but i called him. he said "i'd take a DHF for angel fire. if it was steeper and rougher like lenzerheide and where the corners weren't quite as rutty, i'd take the assegai." - he'll chime in soon. he thought DHF rolled faster for sure.

Sounds similar to DHF- good at everything but mud. What would you pick Steve?

Maxxis Icon for dry. They make all the sizes and casing combo's you would need. Can't help with the wet setup- maybe look at some xc world cup bike checks from wet races.

Zero ability to panic shift on sudden uphills. For everything else, works.

Curious if the top guys will throttle back to not lose points by flatting and DNFing. Or just run 3 cushcores per tire, ghetto tubeless & 50 psi. Track looks cool.

flex travel is a thing... might want to put some clay or styrofoam or something soft on your seattube and jump off some loading docks to see how much flex travel you get before going to a shorter shock. you can do 62.5 stroke also.

it appears most of these athletes are competing in Olympic disciplines (although not sure about CX). Zink & Straight don't really race. Good point on Gwin though- USA has a pretty solid DH contingent- Gwin, Shaw, Mullally, Klein, Norton etc and having them train together would probably be beneficial.

I'd like to see at least an option for heavier tires made of normal cheap materials. 1500 gram tire with normal rubber (not sticky DH rubber) would be pretty indestructible on the trail bike, roll fast enough and not wear out too quickly. Pressure could ... more »
