    I'm never going back to regular tires!

    i've been using a kenda nevegal sticky compound tire lately and cant beleive the difference it makes while riding, especially over rocks.

    You will when you have to replace them every month. Mine were wearing out so fast it just wasn't worth the grip benefits. I switched over to Pani Rampages almost same tread pattern and a lot cheaper.

    Yeah well if its worth the performance benefit then I will replace them every month (even though that sounds like quite an exageration since i have been running them for about three weeks now, hitting the dirt about three to four times a week and taking the kids out on paved roads while pulling a babytrailer, several times a week.) I have to deal with some rooty trails, where I ride. If you arent worried about the wear issues then they are definately worth your $. In the early 90s everybody griped about the Continental XC for the rear, because it did'nt wear well, but in thier day they were worth thier weight in gold from a performance standpoint.

    you can also get the DTC version. last a long time, rolls much faster, and still corners great. basically its sticky on the sides and hard down the middle. i have been running one on the rear on my bike for about 1.5 years and its still going strong.

    I usually use the DTC on the rear for better rolling resistance, and the stickE on the front for better traction.
