Might be more beneficial to wrap your head around the understanding of how a tire is, or could be constructed. I am no expert on tire machines, but you might be asking more than the current machines can do. I do find it rather odd that people are putting ... more ยป

It is pretty full on with a 65 hta. I am going to switch it back next week to stock to "remember" what it felt like. Probably isn't necessary for my trails but it has helped at speed and has kept it planted when climbing. New bb height with 65hta is 345mm measured. Incase that helps.

How's the pike conversion, i am assuming TF tuned. i was curious if it makes sense to do for my own rig. going ccdb coil next week. The frame is so basic in terms of small parts, no torque, and minimal parts, i like the idea of coil to compliment the bolt-action reliability of the frame.

These are the 60tpi versions. they feel a little more burly than previous versions i've had. no issues to speak of so far.

I do enjoy Santa Cruz's "we beat the shit out of this to show it is strong" approach to marketing. They did the same thing with frames a few years back. I remember calling a guy at Boeing who's frame was not going to be warrantied. He was responsible for the carbon layup of the main wing section of whatever Boeing plane had it. He laughed in my face and told me that the bike industry is in the stone ages of carbon. I still LOL at us for how we talk about it.

All it proves is that Santa Cruz will now have to warranty every single rim.
