I think US pricing is off, the 161 is $3075 when you subtract the VAT for non-UK/EU. Looks like UK and EU pricing is consistent with the 161.

I tore the sidewall on the rear on the 5th ride. I live on the front range of Colorado and ride 3-5x a week, for dry rocky terrain the front tire wore way faster than any tire I’ve ever owned. Early on in the spring when dirt was damp and tacky I couldn't ... more »

Agreed, the STA is too slack by today’s standards. I had cross shopped a 153 29 but went with a Sentinel due to the geo on the Sentinel being that much more speed inducing.

Cracked open the later Mountain Flyer and saw an ad for a Kona Process X, haven't been able to find anything about it online.

Niner just teased a pic of the rig that drops tomorrow. Looks to be the next gen WFO.

Been waiting years to see Transition’s proper take on an XC bike. Not disappointed. wouldn’t want it as my only bike for the trails I ride, but I’d love to have this in the garage!

So we get NO explanation about why the empty shuttle truck & trailer are down the bank in the ditch? Wild times.

I tried these and had high hopes, but after two rides in rocky desert terrain the side knobs were already tearing apart. Back to e*thirteen and maxxis as my go to tires.

I wanted to like the Wild Enduro, I really liked the compound and the tread pattern was working great for the spring conditions. I however tore the sidewall on the rear on a seemingly phantom rock on the 5th ride with them. The front tire hooks up great, but my local trails are rocky / loose over hard, and they seem to be wearing much faster than other any other tire I've run.
