Outtakes always make you realize it really is WORK. Good job.

I love the big move to seat up and casually pedaling away transitions.

Tallboy 4 - "The Covid Custom"

Awesome bike and build. I’m considering swapping my 150mm alu frame for this next season and seeing how far I can push the Tallboy with a 140 fork.

wow. all those sounds make me happy. well, except maybe for the hubs (sorry i9!). digging my Project321 w/ silent pawls. run em a little low on oil and you still get a nice audible and soothing high engagement sound. swarms of angry bees need not apply. nice edit!

Jim did you have the older version of the tires? The old TRS that was on YTs had smaller center knobs and absolutely massive cornering knobs. They were kind of a random tire but worked 'just ok' for me as a front. Now I'm seeing minions on the Jeffsy.

I'm on the A/T trail (f) and S/S enduro (r) and am liking the front tire better than the prior version. The combo works well with the obvious caveat that if you're riding super loose terrain things can get very interesting very quickly with the semislick.

Next year I'm keen to try the Kenda Helldiver semislick rear w/ Gwin's new tire on the front or the Hellkat.

Looks like improvements in all the right spots

$65 with no middle man strikes me as kinda expensive. MAP (minimum advertised price) for most Maxxis models is less than $70. A direct to consumer cost of $45-$50 would put them on par with the wholesale pricing of the the most expensive mtb tires available.

The initial look is similar, for sure, but there are differences. It rolls faster, for one. The cornering knobs have the innovative siping too. There are many other subtle differences too: Knob surface area, shape and position etc.

Not very earth-shattering at $65 dollars. If they were $40-50 that would be more newsworthy. When you have a boutique carbon FS bike, top of the line suspension and carbon hoops you usually don't lose any sleep if you spend 10-15 dollars more per tire. Not diminishing the performance of the...more

I wouldn't call them tangible performance gains. I have significant time on both Super Deluxe and X2, and while they all feel a bit different the Öhlins is in the same league now. The X2 offers more external adjustments, whether or not you need such granular control is a question for...more

Never buy the Mk1.
It's as true now as ever. This one actually looks alright

But if nobody buys the MK1, there will never be an MK2 and where would that leave us?

thanks for the review Johan.... and the obvious follow-up question is if there are tangible performance gains over the super deluxe, x2, topaz, and there's an updated dpx-2 this year also. i like the HSC and sounds like the climb switch works a treat.

I'm on a Jade-X coil shock this year and depending on how it goes will consider going back to an air spring next year if the coil is too planted and i want to get a little life back in the rear suspension.
