Opinion: Be More Like Chris
Yeah, gotta get more of those tailgate BBQ's after the ride. Good memories with friends during and after the rides. Also rides where you get hit by a storm unprepared and everyone comes out of it looking like Schwarzenegger covered in mud in Predator. :D

First Ride: Pirelli's Updated Scorpion Enduro & eMTB Tires
I don't go with the marketing BS that's put out for a product. I just read the comments of people who either like or hate the tires they've ridden on or ask your riding buddies who ride the same trails. The only real thing I look at are tread patterns, casing, rubber softness, and price. Weight might be a concern if I'm going to be doing a lot of climbing. A lot of people buy Maxxis is based on marketing. However, I find that this brand has thinner widths than their claimed widths - this is verified by myself and others after putting the tires on. They look a lot thinner and when you put the calipers on them, it's pretty much verified even at the widest part of the tread pumped up to 40psi or deflated to maximize the tread width. It's like you buy 2.5" tires and they come out at 2.2"! Instead of calling themselves Maxxis, they should rename their brand to be Thinnis. Then, they come out with wide versions for wide rims while other tire manufacturers like Schwalbe are true to their claims without having these kinds of marketing gimmicks.

First Ride: Pirelli's Updated Scorpion Enduro & eMTB Tires
@tofhami: You can say that for pretty much everything else. But yet, we need to still pay for necessities. Bike tires are not a necessity. Luckily, I bought all tires for my vehicles and for my bike before everything sky rocketed and before the price increases are blamed on supply chain issues. We live in an MSRP world. Sadly, it's demand driven and that MSRP rises due to that itch to buy new things.

@trollhunter: I can't find any justifications for tires that require a lot less rubber than vehicle tires and costing the same or sometimes even more. I can only see why Pirelli is just getting into making bike tires - it's because the mountain biking industry has become a fashion to make a killing on. The stupid thing is, a bunch of people will just throw the money to get the latest even when it's not the greatest.
