    maxxis minion dhf - Single ply version

    Those that might run this tire, have you found you need to run higher PSI. Running this on the rear at 30PSI tubeless on a Flow rim. I am a heavy guy but find this tire lays over a little. I do like this performance but was told I should run a higher PSI to help fight the lay over feeling. I have ran many Specy tires at this PSI and not had this feeling.

    It one of these two options. Not 100% sure which one Ryan at Kore ordered me.

    26X2.50 ( 55-559 ) Black 60 FOLDABLE 860 3C MAXX TERRA 65 3C/EXO
    26X2.50 ( 55/59-560 ) Black 60 FOLDABLE 930 SINGLE 65 ST/EXO

    You are probably running the first one, the 3C, I doubt you are running a Super Tacky.

    860 gram tire, EXO casing, its going to flex at lower pressures. Especially since its tubeless.

    Been running the single ply minions for years at 25psi tubeless. Started to up it to 28psi but ya they will give. I'm constantly drifting on corners. Grippy or fast rolling when it comes to psi...you choose. It's the same with every tire.

    I'll try a few more PSI today. This is the first 800 gram tire I have fold over on me. But then again, I normally don't run Maxxis tires.

    Even if you run slightly higher pressure, you are still going to get more grip since you are running tubeless. It won't make that much of a difference in handling on the shale of PMP. The 3C is pretty grippy as is, although they never lasted too long on valley trails.

    I feel the same way. I like the grip and handling characteristics but I dont really trust the side wall. Seems like the bead is going to just pull right off the rim at lower psi which makes me very uncomfortable. I too run higher psi. Oddly enough Im running a 2.4 Ardent on my 29er and can run that tire at 23 psi with no concern what so ever. Maybe its just that tire. Too bad really but I dont think I will be buying another minion exo.

    True, I test rode a yeti 66 last week with full ardent setup and they seemed really predictable even though i heard lots of stories about the give past a certain point.

    If they would put the minion tread pattern on the ardent casing they would have a winner. Im not sure why the minion side wall is so weak.

    All depends on how aggressive you are. The center tread has plenty of grip, same with the side knobs, its just that "jebus point" between them that can catch you off guard. They are really great tires though, once you learn to trust them and really lean the bike into the turns, they have insane traction.

    Specialized tires are over-priced for how they perform and last, like Schwable. Minion DHF get what you pay for.
    Nice KOM, sorry about your penis.

    agree here with Kavu,

    cycle, maybe cause it's a single ply......... I wouldn't expect too much from them. But with that said I was running 2.35 single ply minions, and had to run a min of 32psi front and 34psi back to get that more stand up feeling.
    Switched over to 2.5 minions dhf front/back exo and big difference, back at running 26psi front and 28psi all tubeless.

    Just ordered Highrollers 2, got a chance to play with it and it was great. A heck a lot faster rolling than the minions, and corners amazingly. single ply exo 2.4 in super tacky

    Singlespeeders are the Honey Badgers of biking: we don't give a ****.

    Do they make this in a 29-inch tire?

    Yes you do, otherwise you would not post pics of you climbing a little hill. Maxxis does have this for clown bikes.

    Huh? I don't post pics on MTBR. MTBR is reserved for *****ing about the weather and tattletailing.

    (P.S. I had a Maxxis Minion on my "I have a small penis" bike, and the thing was bombproof. I'm not sure if what "ply" it was.)

    Small penis is related to haven driven a toyota prius, not a Kona!

    I think you're confused: the larger the car, the smaller the cock.
