I find the Assegai is really good but sometimes the taller side knobs fold over during hard cornering on rock/hard pack.

The dhf does significantly better in these situations.

I’ll definitely give a Dissector a try once mid-July rolls around and it gets stupid dry here in the Okanagan.

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.

That makes sense. But to put one of the slowest rolling, softest and grippiest tires in the rear doesn’t imo. Maybe if it was assegai f/r I could see that but to me DHF/Assegai just seems random.

I've noticed this with the EXT but not so much with the DD....

So many other companies need to start taking note of Spec. Their aesthetics are just so damned good. Feel like with SC you go between decent and puke (tallboy) but they could easily give them a job like that and have it fully dialed.

Huck to flat jokes aside, I can’t bring myself to like poles, they just look broken, despite hanging all the blingest kit off them.

Agreed. Love their innovative construction techniques and the progressive geometry, but I can't get over their lines.

The Evolink frames are really nice to look at, but I'm not sure how I feel about the Machine and Stamina

They are even worse, IMO.

Let me illustrate:

Each colored line represents a piece of tubing on the Pole Evolink. The only two lines that are similar are the Downtube purple and chainstay seatstay brace brown .
