I like damn near anything with wheels and/or an engine.

Interview: Talking About Tires With Maxxis, Schwalbe, Continental, WTB, & Others
I hate most Minions with a passion, but I agree with your statement about getting used to one tire.

2 wheel vehicle tires have to do more than 4 wheel vehicle tires. MTB tires are dirt cheap compared to even commuter moto tires.

First Look: WTB's HTZ E-Bike Wheels Are Designed For Toughness, Not Lightness
If toughness was the goal, they wouldn't have used straight gauge spokes.

First Look: Cervelo's First Mountain Bike is a Race-Bred Hardtail
@rockandride6: Exactly. Why wouldn't these just be made in the same factory that is making Santa Cruz frames?

Review: Maxxis's New Forekaster Tire is Heavier & Better Than The Original
@babathehutt: The old formula of Stan's did that, but so did the old Orange Seal. I had Orange Seal blowout the side of tires back in 2014. After a LOT of convincing my mechanic got me to try Orange Seal again this year and it was okay. Still dries up pretty fast, though. I've had better luck with Muc-Off, Bonty, Hutchinson, and Conti Revo.

10 Retro, Rare & Rad Bikes From Sea Otter Attendees
Their last gen alloy bikes didn't need to be 157 to be stiff enough, either. That last alloy Mach 6 was a good bike. The Trail429 would be on my short list if they offered an alloy 148 version, (As it is, the Ripley AF tops my list.)
