Nice great to hear good things about them. I was Schwalbe all the way previously decided to try something different this time. (Nobbic Nics & Hans Dampf)

Currently on Hellcat front too, friend donated it. Excellent allrounder for the front, mine is the ATC which has flimsy sidewalls even for my 69kg. It rolls faster than both MM and DHF, which are my favourite fronts. Grip is very good and in terms of character/feel I'd place it somewhere in between the MM and DHF. Not a true 2.4 though. On durability, I've got some small chunks of centre tread missing, but the sideknobs are solid so far. Our terrain is of the sharp rocky variety. A combo of AEC front, AGC rear would be a good peace of mind solution. I can't recommend the ATC casing, sides fold too easily on the low 20's.

Picked by up a Vassago Radimus Ti to replace my steel Honzo frame. Somewhat similar geo. Building it today...hopefully.

I like everything about that frame. Mind sharing the geo numbers?

I absolutely loved my Honzo but I race endurance events and stage races on the East Coast so I needed something that isn't too slack for tight technical trails but is lighter than the Honzo. I'm hoping this will be my do it all ride.

Will do !... Trying to sort install, I picked up a used Wheels mfg. bb, Anyone know If I have to use the wave washer since these cranks come with a preload adjustment mechanism and I believe that is what the wave washer does as well.
