I enjoy riding fast, rolling singletrack but have no problem dialing up the tech on the steep and rooty stuff that is really common in this area. To that end, I'm always on the lookout for a fast-rolling tire that can hold its line through varying terrain.

Bike Technology is moving so fast these days it’s hard to keep up. So and so's new suspension design promises to make you faster and be more efficient, while somebody else promises to shave a whole 20 grams off last year’s setup. After you've been in this game for over a decade it seems really easy to become a jaded grumpy bastard when it comes to anything new.
