So good! If this was the rating thread, I'd give it a 9.7!

I feel bad for anyone posting for the next few days. That Starling is absolutely it.

Thanks gents, I'll get some proper bike porn pics rolling once the last touches get wrapped up (and if it can ever stop raining for couple minutes)

Lovely bike and a good looking build! What terrain do you ride? I had an horiffic time with Goodyear tyres and are yet to find anyone that are happy with them locally!

Just installed new tires on my Trance, what do you think of the grey sidewall?



What size are they? I went with the 2.35, I'll probably go for the 2.6 next time. Great tyres though, loads of grip.



I went for the 2.6 although they buzz on my fenders, so I'll be taking the fenders off soon

And that YT looks amazing

DAMN, that Jeffsy looks sooo Sweet! The Martellos really complete the package! I’d have gone 2.6 as Iva a 2.6 Agarro on rear and love the footprint.

will the 2.6's even fit on the Jeffsy??

A little bit of everything, mostly dhish stuff but plenty of fast, buff trails too. I've had these and the Wild Enduros on my to-try list for a while now. I can't say I've felt particularly held back by any modern tire over the past few years, but with that said the Hellkats have definitely emerged as my favorite... there's a very good chance they'll find their way onto this bike in the future!

Yes, Iva 29x2.6 Agarro on the rear of my ‘18 Jeffsy AL 29... have a 27x2.8 NN for it as well...

I’ve been running wild enduros for a while now and I love them! I was all over the place on the Newton’s, thread depth is too shallow and the compound too hard for round here. The final nail in the coffin was when I turned in on a damp pavement and the front washed out tearing my waterproofs!

My mate won a set of Hellcats at an enduro so thought he’d give em a try and really rates them!

Yeah I think so, there's still a decent bit of space on the rear, and they're only technically 6mm wider so should be OK.

I'll probably change once I've worn out the rear this summer, and then put on a mota on the front for winter. Or I may go with an Agarro 2.6 on the rear.

My freshly built whyte g-160 can't wait to ride this properly.

Is that rear derailleur really working properly with that cassette?

I wish i could say yes its okay unless you put too much power into the cranks. So only use the top gear for gentle climbs really.
