Speaking of DTH's...can you or anyone else speak to how they perform on dry, dusty hardpack?

I only run DTH on the rear, they do grip well. I have even tried them on the front and it was quite difficult to not slam your mouth(I crash once with DTH on the front because they tend to slip over a little bit more on the front Big Grin But on the pumptrack or skatepark they will do their job just fine(DTH/DTH). I nmy opinion Ikon front DTH rear is just the combo that you want to run Smile
exactly what I was going to say

Onto another topic to do with wheels and tires. Anyone think I can run tubeless dths on my spank rims. They say they have bead bite so it helps keep it seated but do you think I’d be able to run 45 psi on dirt jumps

In theory you can. Whether you should probably not. Tubes are king in this sub forum.

I had issues, specifically with spank race 28s and Subrosa 30s blowing every tubeless tires i put on them within days. Might work better for you, but I don't even try to run spanks as tubeless anymore. I have carbon bontrager XXXs tubeless ony xc bike at 30 psi, for DJ pressure I don't recommend tubeless. Get tubolitos one time and be done with it.

Good to know...building my first wheel set this week with Spoon 32’s and was considering tubeless. Not anymore.

Thanks for that! $53.00 for shipping is pretty steep, I might see if I can fit a 2.3 in the back and still slam it

Yeah I figured shipping might be pretty steep......I guess sometimes it just comes down to how bad do I really want it, hahaa.

So, why are Kore handlebars so hard to get in the states? I'd like to get a set of the gold Rivera, but can only find them from China.

Question for y’all, I know it’s personal preference. But would you get a SC Jackal or a Chromag Monk if these were your only choices ? I’m currently riding an older transition TOP size long, and looking to build a new bike.

Santa Cruz has a better track record of not cracking headtubes and has a better warranty. I'd love a V1 Jackal, such a beautiful frame.

Although I prefer a steel frame, in this case I think I would agree with this.
