Tonight I got my rear tire issue sorted out. Fano brought over a 110 and we mounted it up to my wheel with the Mefo bibs and it felt good. More like the 12psi it should feel like. So now I have to order two 110 tires. $$$
If anyone needs a last minute 120/100-18 maxxis IT for the race let me know otherwise the two I have are going back to RMATV.

It's not a question of whether a 120 with a bib will work. The bibs he got are for a 110 tire even though he ordered the size for a 120. 110 bib in a 120 tire will end up with major rim damage and the bib disintegrating.

I made some good progress the past two days. I got my tires mounted on both wheel sets. Saturday morning I went down to RMATV to exchange my Maxxis 120's for the 110's but they were sold out of the 110's. Oh shit! After looking through the catalog and talking to Fano on the phone I decided to go with the Dunlop mx71 for the rear in the size 120/90-18. If they're good enough for Kurt then they're good enough for me ;) and they fit the Mefo bibs perfectly.
My bike is all together and ready to rock. I've also got friend Steve's bike put back together to take for spares. Today I got the trailer bearings replaced and packed, lights fixed, and a box of spares and chemicals packed.
Tomorrow I'll focus on my nutritional needs. I'll get the rest of the food I'll want during the race and some electrolytes for the camel back.
Wednesday will be a rest day. Hang out with the kids, afternoon massage, and then the final pack and to bed early. Yeah right:)

It's ALOT of work! I put a new front tire (MX71) on with a fresh bib (been running a mx51 and the bib was well worn and soft). The new tire/bib was stiff enough that I took a click of compression out of the forks.
More rain today in Nevada. Looks like the area around Hawthorne had heavy rain.

You'll like the 71. More durable.
So rain may mean the wash crossings may have some sharp edges.?

yes watch out for flash flood washes.. they blend in..sometimes deep and short so it will kick your ass up.. a flying W at 80 is absolutely puckering.. they will sneak up on you and you will have to wheelie over them.. some will be only a foot and broke down from earlier bikes/quads but some will be suprisingly high at two to three feet
