    Grew tired of spinning and falling down, replaced 12 year old rock hard worn out MX tires with Motoz Arena Hybrid Gummy BFM rear and Shinko MX216 fatty front. Should be better.

    Not since early spring. One more month of full time roadracing including an epic trip to Barber, then I can get dirty.

    I’ve spent some time on the shinko cheater. The 505 or whatever it’s called.
    It wears pretty quick, and I’m not 100% sure it’s any better all around than the mt16.
    That is all.

    bummer on seat time but i know how it goes.

    the take off IBEX is still working great, lots of grip, but i feel like i'm on borrowed time. the gash i plugged is still holding air but the knobs are cracking at the base, pretty amazed they aren't ripping off or chunking though. it was dry + grippy last weekend, perfect recipie to eat them up but they're doing fine.

    i was planning to grab another for the fall season anyway, pulled the trigger a little early.

    Re: Bumpy tires again

    we rode 20mi of mostly uphill, snotty rocks + roots yesterday at Beartown. the IBEX continues to impress me. i don't think the rear wheel slipped once (!) everything felt like ice, sooo many pucker moments, yet that tire gripped everywhere. amazing.

    Fatty front did OK but i felt like it was packing mud too easily turning it into a skate. i would have to purposely hit something to clean it out after deep mud. clear water was a godsend.

    Re: Bumpy tires again

    I put around 230 miles on a Dunlop AT81EX last week. The EX is a gummy tire. It worked great on rocky uphils and hard pack, but was really squirmy coming out of turns. I started out around 12 PSI, and gradually brought it up to 15. The tire did feel more stable as it wore down, and it's the first time I rode anything different from a MT16 in a while, so maybe it's normal for the tire. The center knobs are well worn and starting to tear, but the tire is still working really well even though it looks like death. This is on a KTM 500 riding in WV, with zero fucking finess.

    The trails in WV were in really good shape without many wash outs. It was dry and a little dusty the first few days, then we got some rain. The leaves are starting to come down and a lot of the trails were covered, that kinda sucked.

    I know som guys are riding HM this fall. If you're riding single track trails at Bear Wallow, approach 194, 195, and 196 from the end closest to 71. That's downhill. We've done it the other direction a few times, and it's a bitch. Make a point to hit 83, fun flowing trail.

    At Rockhouse, approach 188 from 29. Approach 199 from 94! Fuck 151 in either direction.

    I'll look at Buffalo in a minute.
