    Re: Bumpy tires again


    I'm really confused. The Husky came with Dunlop AT81s front and rear. I'm riding old pasture sod and rock ledges right now. I Can't find fault with the grip. Especially on the tough sod. They really punch in and grip. I'm having a tough time getting used to the really stiff sidewall. I feel that the tires should not hold well but they do. They also seem to grip the rocks well. Part of me want's to hate these but then they are working pretty well. One area that I don't care for the non compliant carcass is when crossing roots and small logs. The front deflects pretty easy.

    PS it's almost time for traction spikes.. Damn ground is starting to set up.

    The rear wears like iron, that’s part of the reason people love them. I have no experience with the front.
    I wanna ride. Like, a lot.

    Bummer about the thumb dude. Tell you what.. I'll go out and ride for you..

    On the tire front. I sprang for a set of mixed terrain tires from Mike Studs. I've always wanted to try some winter riding. Paired with some grip heaters I should be in for a new adventure

    Auto's or rally's?
    I assume he calls the rally studs mixed use. I expect you'll be satisfied. That dude is a pretty colorful character.

    I was torn between long and mixed terrain. I figure there is a greater chance of riding light snow and frozen ground than deep snow these days. If the snow gets deep i will ride ice or the wife.

    I was exposed to the IRC Gekkota IX09 yesterday.. This tire is shockingly supple. The racer i talked to about it says he can get a couple hare scrambles out of one and trail ride until it's toast. Outstanding on wet rocks. Anyone try one?

    not yet ... i wanted to try the Gekkota bofore the IBEX but didn't have access, no US suppliers at the time ... the IBEX is stupid supple as well ... i bet they're all (Tackee inc) very similar except for weight and longevity.
