That’s sick. I’ve heard great things about the riding in your area. Gotta get a road trip going this spring. Maybe southern OR also.

I don't get out much, too much work LOL Our company will bid on the construction of different parts of the improvements. We are doing 3 projects for the city right now. There are some good trails around here along with Mt Shasta Ski Park an hour north, another hour up the road is Mt Ashland both are great !

Lewis Buchanan s Forbidden Druid ready for the 2020 season.

I don’t understand the people who ride the DHF in the front and the Assegai in the rear. Seems silly

the assegai has better mud clearing, lets it move through the frame easier if it gets super muddy. Less grip on the rear is more fun, for me at least, because I like drifting around corners and whatnot. DHF is made to be on the front, works dreams.

Isnt' the Assguy a trimmed DHRII? Or rather, made to mimic a trimmed down DHRII?

DHRII is a great front or rear tire, so it'd make sense in that regard.

If anything i feel like the assegai has more grip than the DHF.

Assegai has more grip than the DHF. Best combo for me is Assegai front DHR II rear for the shoulder seasons. Then Assegai front Aggressor rear when things get dry and dusty.

Try the Dissector on the rear when its dry and dusty , its really good ... all around for that matter, braking is nearly as good as the DHR2 but rolls much better

Assegai grip on entire tread profile allowing 'shit on a blanket' traction, where as the DHF has that weird 'no grip zone' when leaning into corners making it a better rear tyre for drifting. Lately I've been riding rocky fast DH and shreading tyres, they all seem to be spilting where rock points get into the gaps between knobs slicing the casing. Have had better luck with Assegai and Agressors as there are more knobs closer together. I've bought some Dissectors however they massive gaps between knobs and will probably get sliced first run....

the aggressor has that weird combing between the knobs that definitely helps in the dust. im using a butcher on the rear right now for low tire weight/rolling resistance gainz but ill go back to dd aggressor during the summer
