DHR 2 Great tire, try DHR 2 Double Down Max Grip if you want to take it to the next level of grip and side wall support.
Totally. If I end up riding more wet & mud this season than I planned on, I may seriously take that advice from you and try that as my next tire. I didn't know that I'd notice the difference in this that much. It's great, glad I did it.

Proper tires make a world of difference. I switched from aggressor 2.5 with dd maxxterra casing to a High Roller 2.5 with dd maxxterra and a tannus insert. Hooooo doggie that thing grips. But slower uphill but I’ll take it for ability to rip and grip. Have fun with the dhr2 they are stellar tires!
Cool ! let me know how the high roller holds up... Max grip wears fast but grips to the end... maxxterra roll a hell of a lot better. probably safe running it on rear.

Thanks for the support guys. Towards the end of the day I was definitely feeling ballsy and started to climb up to an area where there are only real trails to get down but about halfway up the climb I started to realize just how sore I was and took the road out. Really good call because even the small vibrations from riding the road was pretty painful. Probably gonna stick to low angle stuff for quite a while longer.

In other news I am in talks with the local forest circus guys on getting my permits to collect drone footage.

Got about halfway thru this tree in like 45 mins with a hand saw. any one have recommendations for better saws that i can be sneaky with?

Silky Saw make the best hand saws. Also sneaky are battery chainsaws but they're not silent like a hand saw.

The sneaky part for me is just getting it onto the trail, i think if i can find an electric chainsaw that i can fit in my backpack itll be ok. Its far enough into the woods that im not worried about a little noise

update; the same afternoon you mentioned silky saw, i saw a pro using one on instagram, messaged him about it and he said it was sick. Luckily i had an REI dividend just sitting there so picked up a 'Big Boy', should be able to get thru all kinds of logs now

Oh those are top shelf!

Oh sh*t yeah that's like one of those hand held folding saws right?
I use those ALL the time cutting erroneous stuff growing around my yard. Their insane and do a hell of a job.
Maybe I didn't think of suggesting that because I use them for smaller tree limbs and branches, but that actually sounds like a brilliant idea. I borrowed a nice one from a friend a few years ago, it worked out so well I went and got a CHEAP one and even that thing is a monster. Cuts the branches in no time.
On a big log like that, as long as you have a good starting point to get it in it should rip it apart.

I've got a Silky Oyakata. Make sure to get the blade for fresh wood. Brilliant piece of kit.
Just don't lend it to a friend who does not acknowledge that it solely cuts on the pull stroke...

We've got Andres new GoPro pretty dialed with the angle and stuff so finally I can make some less shaky videos... This is the lower portion of my daily ride with my buddy on follow cam...also a couple miles of my trail building over the last few years...
