Review: Michelin's Wild Enduro Tires Deliver Tons of Traction
@Ttimer: Michelin's are all much slower rebound and much softer than just about any other brand. It is why I wore out a set in 450 miles. The slow rebound is why the tire occasionally transmits jarring chatter- Michelin's choke up and bog down over high speed impacts in a similar way to cane creek's double barrel spool valves. The result is sudden loss of traction. However, they are much stickier in loose conditions than any other tire I have owned. I loved mine- a set of Country Race'r tubeless in 29x2.1 rolled nearly as fast, weighed more, and gripped significantly better in loose conditions than my Schwalbe rocket rons in 29x2.35. I lost 90 seconds off an 17 min 30 sec loose loop when I finally cut through the casing and had to switch. I haven't got that time back yet. Though, I would like to know how you know Magi X2 is slower rebound than Gum X.

Review: Michelin's Wild Enduro Tires Deliver Tons of Traction
Well they just told you the Mag X2 is stickier at high speed than the softer Gum X. Therefore, the Gum X is softest, and softer is not necessarily any better for traction, especially in rough high speed situations. This isn’t rocket science boys. The question is: are you fast or are you slow?

Very well. The sun finally came out, but every trail is currently underwater. I may have some good pictures soon. I am reshimming the fork damper to match the rear shock and remove the platform over the next few days.

Field Test: Yeti SB130
@DrPete: most bikes aren’t designed with the shortest chainstays possible. 436 felt neither stable nor playful on my first 29er frame, but 440 makes for a beast on loose climbs. Shorter isn’t always better.
