to add to this. On your newer tires (Vigilantes etc) it seems your side knobs are "opened to the front". I understand that that is to scoop dirt as you lean the tire over and pull the tire into the turn. But I've generally found that this design pulls the tire a bit too much in really agressive leaning, and also tends to make the tire break loose when braking in a corner (I know you're not supposed to brake in a corner, but it happens). Wouldn't a more neutral side-knob angulation be more... neutral? or more predictable at least?

Cool, thanks! Any chance you'll make the Trail Boss in a 26" (with Inner Peace?!)

My only tire failures since going tubeless (6 years now?) have been cuts in the casing, a mm or two above the rim interface. I'm not sure what the cause of this is, or how prevalent it is. It always feels like a snake bite (like when I case a gap into a square edge rock, or air into a rockgarden at speed), but a snake bite would happen on the crown of the tire wouldn't it? It would seems to me that some sort of reinforcement at that tire/rim interface that goes up the sidewall a cm or two would be welcome and wouldn't add much weight. any thoughts?

Five Questions: WTB's Jason Moeschler on Wheel and Tire Design
so what happened to Marco Osborne in the Oregon Enduro finals up in Hood River? Blew up a rim and had to walk out? I've had a Frequency i23 on my bike for 3 seasons now (front wheel). It's been solid and dependable. I've recommended them to quite a few friends. I will very likely replace it with an i25 (and wouldn't mind trying an i27 or i28 if every they are made in 26"). Please oh please continue making products in 26".

Pinkbike Poll: How Has Your Riding Style Changed Over the Years?
I bought a house, had two kids and haven't slept in 5 years. I didn't ride my DH bike once last year. You need to be able to concentrate to ride DH. and you can't really afford to break anything when you have two young kids. I learned that the hard way when I broke my wrist 10 days before my first son was born. I was pretty useless in the delivery room with a cast on... Also, stamina is non-existant in my sleep-deprived state. I can't keep up with my buddies on trail rides anymore. It's getting better though, and my new years resolution is to ride my DH bike more this year.

Jérôme Clementz Announces 2015 Partners
I clicked on this link because Jérome always posts awesome vids with news releases. Son I am dissapoint. On another note, feels weird to see him without the loud green and yellow colours...

Video: Aaron Chase Shreds on the Pivot Les Fat
PAmtbiker, i think you are missing my point, which is "why"? If he can do all that on a regular bike, and do it better and with more style, then why bother with these abominations?! I disagree that you can ride it like a normal bike. Go watch a video of Chase on any other bike. waaay more rad and waaay more style. I said the same thing about Simmons, Tippie and Gully on fatbikes... Hank, I think you're right, I should stop watching these videos that try and make look fatbiking look cool. It's just not working for me.

I didn't see much in there that couldn't be ridden on a "normal" bike. And I for one find Aaron much more stylin' on his "normal" bike and would much rather watch him shred on the regular LES, Point, or M4X. It would be much radder. I have to stop watching these fat bike videos, or I might just convince myself that riding is lame.

do you even realize how high those "hills" are?! not many people can climb "the whole uphill" when the uphills are 4000m.
