Well the F8 rims are pretty poor quality anyways. I think I finally have a couple decent dents in my front rim from bouncing off rocks and G-outs in the desert. I swear if I didn't have more than one bike I would never get to ride. Need to mail my shock out to god knows where for a rebuild and my fork seals are leaking again.

And did ADV just completely break on Firefox for anyone else? Edit: I figured it out, all the quote/post buttons are invisible. WTF?

David is a good guy who has a passion for suspension. Sounds kinda dirty dunnit?

This guy had about 5500mi. of mixed riding on a little Bimmer. Not bad especially when you factor in the price.

I'm not sure about how it does against a TKC. Never had a rear one. Always killed by the sticker shock.
I run a TKC up front because the choices for a 19" front are pretty slim. It wears at a similar rate to the Michelin rear!!!! Believe it or not.
The T63 rear holds up as well or better than the 606 and various Kenda IRC and other reasonably priced on/off tires.
This pair has over 3000 miles on it. Plenty of road, the entire CDR, a couple trips to Michaux and over to Kevins on them.

No............but if Reno B couldn't make it up, I don't even want to attempt it. Kev may have his spot track showing he made 4 attempts at it.

I heard he even unloaded his gear off the bike..........

That must be one badass mountain. The bicyclist were walking their bikes down the hill.

Hello, it is easy to fall down. Just point the bike down hill and hang on.

I'll leave that badass stuff to youngsters.

This past weekend the road we were on had a mud hole about 100 yards long. After watching several riders get muddy and wet, I took the old man way and rode the ridge line just off to the side. Reference were made to me losing my man card. At the next stop and the wet boys were now cold, I asked who was smarter.

Sometimes it does help to be the biggest mofo there.

George at ESP here in Socal, yes I know it would be a PITA to ship them. All the local people swear the George is a master at suspension stuff.
