Good looking bikes, for sure ! They look bigger than 2.35 for some reason.

I think he runs wider rims, Like 30 or 35 inside width. Give tires a nice profile.

She got her first thorough cleaning after more than a season and a half , New rubber with Maxxgrip up front , new xtr trail pedals and brake pads , Cracked my Hanger on a rock during this ride but made it home trying not to shift to much..


I will be riding in a lot of water for the weeks going into summer till run off slows down , metal pads screech so much when wet it affects my riding , does anyone run resin pads ??? ,I think they may be quieter in wet conditions ,

Looking good as usual Slacker!! Resin pads typically run quieter but don’t last as long. What brand of pads are you running now? I am a Galfer whore for life! They completely changed my Guides. Best upgrade I’ve made in a while.

Deal with the squeal Slacker… resin pads are weak. They dont come near the amount of bite as metal.

Οn resin pads, it depends on rider weight and length of dh sections. If you are on the heavy side and your descends last more than 5-6mins probably not a good idea. Also as mentioned they don't last long if you are >80-85kg.

For me at 68kg they are more than adequate unless the descend is steep and more than 10mins.

the descents I do on this particular bike range from 20 minutes to an hour or more.. So maybe resin not good idea.
