Maxxis updated the Forecaster for another option to compliment when it's a little too wet for the Rekon

I might get it in the 3C MaxxTerra casing for my Stumpy.

Looks like a mini Assegai

I'm wondering how that would do on the front paired with a rekon in the rear on a downcountry bike..

I've been enjoying the Dissector front, rekon rear 'downcountry' combo

It's got me bummed because I can't find the 3C MT model in any of my distributors. Frown Maybe more will pick them up down the road. Seems like an awesome mid-heavyweight trail tire.

I really like the existing Forekaster, works great for me around here. Bummed but not surprised to see only 29" options this time around. I hope they either keep the existing one alive in 27.5", or introduce the new one.

As more mid-travel and downcountry bikes allow mullet setups, I'm sure companies will start bringing back more 27.5" options. I got a mullet link for my Stumpy that I might try out this fall.

Same. The Scott Genius' even came with that a year or so ago.

This is what my Rise came with as well... no complaints at all, works really well around here.

Anyone have the Parktools Workbench mat? Is it the right size or do you wish it were bigger. Picture from the internet attached.

Do not have one but have worked on one, and wished it was about 50% bigger.

Also my feeling, I have one on my bench.

It's kinda small in person. I have a few pieces of foam from Sram part boxes with black gorilla tape over it at the seams. Pretty easy to keep clean, and don't ever have to worry about what's getting dropped on it.

I've used their bigger blue one and it's pretty good.

I'd agree that the Park one is only the right size for a limited number of jobs.
