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

Watching Jeff's video reviews, I mostly just want to go ride all those trails scattered throughout the mountain states.

I prefer 27mm rims to 30mm rims, but Shawn's point is valid- the 30 will be a tougher rim. As far as WT tires being "Better matched to wider rims," that is 100% marketing gobbledygook. I've mounted non-WT 2.5 DHFs to wide rims and to narrow rims, and ... more »

He says that most gauges aren't zero loss, not that most pumps aren't zero loss. But either way, the whole idea of air loss just doesn't add up.
Think of it this way. When you attach a shock pump, you thread it on a ways and it forms a seal (i.e. pump still reads zero, but...more

Soon enough. Thats actually what we were filming for but ended up with enough riding footage to slap together a quick edit.

Yeah reluctantly agree.
About once every 3 years or so I get tempted into trying something else, and I sometimes find something that is maybe even 80% as good, and you think "yeah these are thoroughly not bad".
But then I go back to Maxxis/Schwalbe and I'm like "mmmm yeah still...more

A fresh pair of DHF/DHRs (or more recently Assegai) is always awesome, but at EXO+ weights I do find that they pinch flat too easily, and the rate at which the side knobs start to tear off is pretty unacceptable IMO. I have plenty of them laying around with lots of tread life...more

If you install the tires in a room that's already inflated to 25 psi the rims won't leak.

Sub zero? Absolute luxury! We used to dream of sub zero, we'd have to ride, uphill - both ways, all day in the ice and snow wishing we had hydraulic post.

I don’t disagree with you, and I just mentioned the DHF as it’s the most popular or one of the most popular in this category from Maxxis. This space has gotten more competitive though

Edit: I’ll also add I respect your experience, you’ve been around longer than I have, and I...more

The difference is that the Nevegal was popular with SLOW people (editors, MBA readers, your dad, etc) and was never popular with pros (see: sharpie sales in 2007), whereas the DHF was and still is popular with pros.

Also, I didn't say the DHF, I said Maxxis. Maxxis makes other tires than the DHF, many of which are great, but (other than Schwalbe) no other brand can put together a good tread, compound, and casing. My point is there aren't a lot of other good options. DHF, DHR, Assegai- these are the only tires I would ever buy at MSRP.

I don't understand why you would buy anything other than Maxxis or Schwalbe. 10 years later and still no one else can match these two brands. Maybe the new Michelin DH tires will work, but why wonder? I don't ride enough to want to potentially waste rides seeing if other tires work.
