Aren't Magura rotors actually made by Galfer? All of my previous Magura rotors were....

Continental Launch All-New Gravity Tire Range
yeah, there is a reason that the EXO+ are back now 60TPI down from 120, they were the kings of pinch flats at the bead. I would say we could wait for reviews to see how these perform but...... pinkbike and other media raved about EXO+ until they were redone and now they all admit how puncture prone they were (worse than EXO by far). I would like to try these tires but definitely don't want bead pinch flats or the previous massive casing wobble that all of my trail kings of past developed.

Opinion: Hello, Can I Get An Extra-Medium Frame Please?
Want an easy way to have a wide reach range? Have a long base reach with a low stack height. If you want to keep the long reach get a high rise bar, if you want to shorten reach add spacers and lower rise bar. Some bike brands have been criticized for the long stated reach but low stack (ie Knolly) but in retrospect this actually seems like a good idea, assuming you are willing to try some different bar and spacer combos.

Why Are So Many Bike Companies Being Bought at the Moment?

Pinkbike Poll: How Far Do You Drive to Ride?
@noplacelikeloam: corporations are not going to save us (DaKine was in HR for years and never did much aside from naming clothing after trails they didn't help build). However, shops like FTF, Cyclepath, RiverCity, etc. should be at the least trying to package NWTA/Evergreen memberships with all mountain bike purchases (this is just smart business sense since a larger mountain bike scene=more sales and maintenance). With a much larger active membership base, NWTA and Evergreen would represent a broader constituency that is harder for metro area recreation planning to ignore and for the small but vocal minority of elitists that want to exclude everyone from their nature parks under false pretenses of environmental protection to malign (Ahem Palatine Hill and Forrest park misanthropes).

Pinkbike Poll: How Far Do You Drive to Ride?
I agree that there are a ton of missed opportunities within the Portland area for sanctioned (others exist...) purpose built mountain bike trails (Forrest park, palatine hill, any of the buttes are all ripe for excellent trails). Gateway green hopefully is a stepping stone to greater access, but mountain bikers need to be vocal and engaged if we want the pseudo-liberal elitists to stop excluding mountain biking from access to urban spaces. Still 45-75min to access Rocky Point, Cold Creek, Sandy Ridge, Post Canyon, Tillamook/Browns, Stub Stewart, Syncline, Growlers, etc makes us pretty ridiculously spoiled with both the quality and diversity of trail networks close by.

Maxxis Updates EXO+ Tire Construction
Same story here and elsewhere. Wonder how this pattern never showed up in any of the reviews?

Maxxis Updates EXO+ Tire Construction
@oregontrail67: Both Tannus and Cushcore have been pretty easy for me with exo/exo+, specialized, and DD tires once I figured out that you you need to pinch the insert up above the tire bead: get the tire bead down in the center of the rim, and pinch the insert up so that it is sitting above the bead. Do this all the way around the rim and the last 6 inchs of tire bead will go on with minimal reefing on tire levers when installing. The total install takes me about an additional 10 min per tire to install. Getting Cushcore off has been a bit more unpleasant....

Maxxis Updates EXO+ Tire Construction
I have had way way more EXO+ tires killed by pinch flats on the rim (even with Tannus) than I ever had with EXO casings. A number of others have noted that the 120 TPI tires actually were more likely to get pinch flats So, I am optimistic that this update will solve this issue!
