Slightly boring comment, but by my rough calculations, that's a 60.5° head angle. Ooof!

Being an owner of a 1320 wheelbase 29er, there are also some comedic downsides not mentioned in this article - largely based around logistics - the bike doesn't fit anywhere!
At least, not anywhere your previous bike did easily.

The most annoying of these issues is chairlifts. It's funny at first, but when your bike has fallen off its 4th chairlift station and destroyed yet another £25 mech hanger, it really starts to get pretty annoying.

So watch out for chairlifts where the bike's front wheel sits in a hoop or wheel bucket - like that in Pila for example. The back wheel drags on the floor and tips the bike out

Cool! Thanks for the reply.
So not just yet another rebranded CST tyre.
It's a shame the main review doesn't feature the information in your post.

Hi Tristan, thanks for the question. We are a privately owned tire maker formed in 1977 with our own rubber plantation and production factory. Every aspect of our manufacturing process, from engineering to design to final production is done in our own factory in Thailand. We even...more

Yeah Maxxis are an independent brand, but their tyres are made by CST. Along with Spesh, Bontrager, E13 and others

I'm glad it's not just me that finds Maxxis terms and name mega confusing.
It took me ages to figure out what it all means, and even longer to work out that they don't make the tyre I was looking for last time I bought a Minion (I wanted 29x2.5 WT Double Down 3C MaxGrip).
WT for example - what does "Wide Trail" actually mean, like in reality?
Does it just mean the other 2.5" tyres kinda aren't really 2.5" wide, we kinda made that up, sos.
And what does "Dual Compound" mean? And why is it only about £2 cheaper than 3C?
And, and, well loads of other ands.

Maxxis - sort it out!

It's 2019, bizutch! Everyone is on tubeless. Good catch though. It has been added to the review.

Definitely a bit shortsighted of Kona on your rims. Ghetto tubeless could be an option for you.

Hardly any Max Grip options available for 29 other than the EXO DH tyre
