Specialized Hillbilly Grid Tire - Review
Yes the tire with name hillbilly has been out longer. The tire that was reviewed here is different. It is a different tread pattern, it is a different rubber compound, it is a different casing, it was even made in a completely different factory. You are correct it is not a new concept and the hillbilly was one of the first cut spikes offered, this particular one shares the name only.

Specialized Hillbilly Grid Tire - Review
Yes they have been available for a couple of months now. 650bx2.6(not really, even there box says so) this size was/is only available in the new model, new rubber, graphics, new sidewall, even a fancy new bow. Go to you local specy dealer and compare the new one to the older 29 hillbilly grid (the only none dh hillbilly that was available prior to the new model) and compare for your self.

Not ture. The older hillbilly 26” dh which was a great tire, and the 29 grid also a great have been out for a years. This hillbilly is different. Different rubber, different sidewall, and different tred patern.

Specialized Hillbilly Grid Tire - Review
Wow really? I have to say that the new hillbilly was one of the worst tires I have ridden. Yes it hooks up in mud, as does any spike or cut spike, but there traction is down right dangerous on any wet root or rock. The new rubber compound is way to hard for a wet weather tire, yes it rolls fast. Front tire would skid on pavement, scary. New grid casing is super flimsy compared to the earlier specy grid casings, requiring higher air pressure to support the knobs. Specialized has a 100% satisfaction on there tires so try it for you self, or do you self a favor and just get a Maxxis Shorty 2.5 or a Super gravity magic Mary if you want more of a all around tire.

Bike Check: Richie Rude's Yeti SB5.5 - EWS Aspen 2017
Not a fan of internally routed cables ether but...the beauty of electrical tape is you can peel it off and use it for a backwoods fix to get you out. P.s. Shrink wrap is easier on internally routed cables, cause you already wasted a hour of your life disconnect everything and fishing them through:(

Spy Shots: Transition's New Sentinel Long-Travel 29er
Can we stop with the whole "effective" seatube angle? It has an angel, it maybe off set but the angle does not change. It is only "effective" at one point... The bike looks great, and super glad there will at least be a non plastic option.
