Mmmm...beefy...
« on: December 24, 2008, 12:50:10 PM »
I got my other new tire on yesterday and decided to take some new pictures of the bike just for the hell of it.

New front tire - Continental Diesel Pro 2.5 UST




Rear tire- Continental Gravity Pro 2.3 UST - same tread as the Diesel, just a smaller size.  Notice the formula that FactorE is intimately familiar with.


Battle damaged cranks -


So Saintly -


Pretty welds -

That bike is a thing of beauty!  I think my next bike should be orange. I assume it's for the Santos pit and Snowshoe type parks? Or are there secret downhill facilities in Florida?

It actually pedals really well for as much travel it has, but you feel the weight when the trails start going up.  I'll ride for normal trail rides if I'm riding solo because I love riding it, but will switch to my xc bike for rides with others.  It does really come into its own when I go out west and can really push it - it just gets better the faster you go.

They are actually somewhat light for their size and I'll use them for the local trails around here.  Out west, I'll switch to a double-ply full downhill tire like a Michelin Comp32/Comp24 or Maxxis DHF/DHR for even more confidence on steep, tech stuff.
