It looks alot like the medusa but I think it might be the new shorty because maxxis still sell the medusa as an xc tire and Vali was racing DH on it! Also someone earlier in this thread said Minnar said it was the new shorty. https://www.maxxis.com/catalog/tire-300-143-medusa ... more »

True but as soon as you make an enduro as capable as a DH bike it becomes a pig to climb. granted it still will climb but itll suck doing it. the quiver killer enduro is an industry lie. You have to sacrifice in other areas thats how everything is! a ... more »

Thats Very true, Last season summit beat the crap outta my enduro but this season my DH bike came out without need any parts replaced except pads and tires!

Im not sure you read my post clearly, I said we rode those DH trails on our enduro's for 2 years and did just fine but I would be lying if I said it wasn't more enjoyable and fun on a DH bike. I also was able to constantly get faster times on the DH. ... more »

Im not sure all I know is I went from a 170mm SC to a 200mm DC and now my hands don't hurt and I can pump out more laps

and for me at the end of the day whatever allows me to ride longer is a good thing!

But In all seriousness we switched to DH because we have access to real raw DH trails close and 3 nearby bike parks. We have ridden these trails for 2 years on enduros and did just fine but after riding a friends DH bike on the same trails it was clear ... more »

I’m going to stop using logic to defend my points and instead use my wife’s DH bike! See look how cool they are!! You’re probably wanting one now huh!? I just saved the DH market, time to buy stocks in the DH market!

Damn ppl are angry against something they don't even have to buy. If you want to wrap your frame, GO WITH RideWrap. Nothing to say except exceptional quality !

Exo with my rimpact inserts aren't cutting it for me, I currently have 4 plugs in my exo tires so never again will I run exo tires on a dh bike!

I'm not sure you even read this post or watched the video haha...

We completely agree that you can "Do It Yourself", but there are pros and cons versus kits that you can buy and that's why we took the time to compare the two methods and put the details together. That way every rider can...more
