Verbiage?

We've all heard that a pic is worth a thousand words. I think vaguely that that means much more can be said about a photo than can be inferred from just looking at it. Pics can be stunning and revealing but they are one dimensional and often need words to bring out their significance.

That tongue twisting intro was all for this pic:

If you feel the need to post this pic elsewhere, please also link your post back here. Thanks.

For those that have been waiting for a true 29" aggressive (ab)use trail tire, it's getting very close. Click on the pic and zoom in to have a gander at that contact patch. That's roughly the pressure I've been riding these babies at, and as you may have guessed the traction is unflippinbelievable. They're also virtually unflattable, but that's another pic and story entirely...

All for now.

  1. That's a great shot.

    Can you get rid of the "human confirmation" type the letter in thing for comments?

  3. Is that a flow on the rear?

    Tubeless?

  4. Enel--I'm gonna leave the confirmation in hopes of limiting the spam and other undesirable comments.

    GT--see what I'm on about?

    Enel--not a Flow. Bigger, better, badder. 36h, double eyelets, and 34mm wide. Hope it gets released this winter. Too good to not be available. There is a 26 x 1.5 tube in that tire (in the pic) and it's being run at about 6 (yes, six) psi. And it's virtually unflattable.

  5. Bigger, better, and badder than the Flow? That's unpossible ;)

    Wish we had terrain to warrant such beefy treads.

  6. 6 psi?

    Hmmmmm.....that's traction friendly low. I guess if you do flat, no need to carry a pump or air cartridge - just blow it up with your mouth. :-)

  7. 6psi! That's awesome...and on a 26x1.5 tube to boot...

    On another note - in the zoomed pic it appears that the fork legs are uneven? Could be the camera angle though...
