No... don't put words in my mouth.

I fully support trials tires. I just laugh at people that put 16 pounds of air in them and think they have this killer traction device.

AIR DOWN MUTHER FUCKERS... AIR DOWN !

Hell, The Grinch runs at least 15-20 lbs in his and it does just fine. Up singletrack and down switchbacks.

These have 38 rear and 36 front. It will go just about anywhere I point it. Testing it out in a few weeks up in CNF.

Yup, I must agree with you Chris. I've had an MT43 on the rear now for almost a year, I run it between 12-16 psi. No flats and great traction, Excellent tread wear, its easy on the trails, best tire for ST, put that in your pipe and smoke it Bolt.
You "fully support trials tires" but never run them? That's just

I put my money where my mouth is PCV and you know it.... I've put more trials tires on bikes than you will in the next ten years. And I have a freshie in the garage for the next time I grace your precious trails. And BIG difference between 12-16 PCV. Or 20psi Chris... that's just NUTZ in the dirt. Freeking racing slick is all that is.

And I am not the bowl smoker... that's the another freaks in this thread.

+1........however, I ride with Pete qquite often in the rough shit, ie, not the CNF, and I highly doubt he has 20psi, maybe 12-15. I run 8-10 on my Mt43 and no flat in a year or more now.

Did go to a Maxxis knob for the Desert a few weeks back and prefer it for that shit. Pete was wishing he had as well that trip.

+1 Funny how I can agree with everything you said when you are agreeing with the guy disagreeing with me.

It really is nothing more than a popularity contest around here.

Saw this bike up there and looked out of place. Key in the bike and the key was on the "ON" position. Don't have a side view just this pic. The bike was in the same spot for 3 hrs or so.

Bike was blue.

Bike was between ortega and santiago peak on main divide in a turn off.

Just off top of my head it had the rockymountain brand tank cap.
