    I love Kenda Nevagals for xc, but they met their match and lost at Wisp on a single black DH trail yesterday.

    A couple hundred yards into "High Roller" my front tire ripped open and came off the rim. That's a really bad thing on a DH trail. Lucky for me, I didn't eat it. I think it's time to go to something a little more heave duty.

    What are you complaining about, when I was a kid I had to ride on those back and forth uphill both ways to school and we never did any Complaining.

    But you were one of those lazy kids. I would always stuff mine with rocks dirt and grass. A tire that has been skidded on so many times it blows out will not hold air but it will hold rocks dirt and grass. Plus you get a long break when you stop and fill a tire with those items. Pumps, patches and spare tubes are just to much weight for a cool guy to be hauling around.
