"teething problems"...? If I bring one of my company's products to market whilst it still exhibits "teething problems", I would be looking to replace myself as company director.

Waki, The people around you are far more important than a bunch of (mostly) faceless beings spouting off on PB. You know the question. And you probably know the answer!!! Enjoy. En comes from enable by the way. Dave

Dear Bike Industry - Opinion
You could not have put it better Niko, here too I am on 135 x 10 on everything except a DH rear end and there is no way I am taking the risk to buy anything that either: A) doesn't fit the frames I have Or B) leaves me with a sense of fear it will be incompatible sooner rather than later. Hell, I built up Stans flow 26 on Novatec 4in1 hubs 4 years ago and have beaten the hell out of them, even on a DH race, and there is nothing at all wrong with them. They are so bulletproof I got new stickers on them last week to make them look spanking. There is nothing worse in my opinion than the feeling that the components one buys become incompatible before they have been properly used and abused. Ride on (old but good stuff)!

Devinci Django 29 - First Ride
@gtrguy: I don't ride a 29er, still very much 26 here, and I hear you worrying about long term stocks of 26 tyres! I, like many people here, found the Ardent (in anything less than 2.4), didn't suit my riding style (or Japanese trails very much), and after close to a decade now of trying any and all sorts.... have you tried a Conti Mountain King II? No, they don't always grip the best on wet rocks and roots, so I'd be reaching for Minions north of Vancouver I'm sure, however, I found that for a generally reliable, predictable rear (and even on the front if your trails are well behaved), it rivalled anything else, is light and when running the tubeless ready version, I have never yet had a puncture that didn't immediately seal with Stans. For anyone interested, I run them on a Banshee Spitfire V2. Just a suggestion in case you haven't tried one.... and there are still 26 versions to be had.
