Best 24" rear DH tire?
I recently put a pretty large slash in the sidewall of my maxxis holy roller (24x2.7). I know I can patch it, but that tire has about 3 patches in the sidewalls already... Any suggestions as far as 24" downhill tires go? Id like it to be around 2.7". I cant seem to find the same tire on any site either(except for maxxis.com where it is 60 bucks)...Links would be awsome
Give Intense 909 FRO (For Race Only) a try. Its Sticky Rubber, and it's even better than the soft Maxxis compounds, IMHO.
Size is 24x2,5", but the volume is about the same as for Maxxis 2,7".
Weight is 1500 grams. A bit heavy, but i ride it with a XC-tube in it, and it holds up just nice. No punctures in a hole year. I'm 250lbs.
(Not my bike..)
Sorry about the crappy engrish.
Chillin the Most
my vote goes too
Kenda Nevegal 24 x 2.5 Stick-e.
DEFINITELY......sticks amazingly well and atleast was the same size as a maxxis 2.7 (haven't seen an 06 yet).

Holy Rollers are street/dirt tires that measure 2.4. I think you mean High Rollers.

A Maxxis 2.7 measures more like a 2.5.

It's a link made by Eric Beaudry. The best thing is to contact Avalanche. Maybe they have more info.
Uhh - check out: http://www.avalanchedownhillracing.com/beaudry.html
High Roller. Handles most stuff and rolls fast!
"Do or Do not, there is no try."
another short, bald guy
Now rollin the Big Hit
The linkage he has is...
The likage he has up there is a Beaudry BigLink
Here is another one:
I have never really seen one before outside of the advertisements, and am very curious to hear if it is ineed a worthwhile upgrade. 9"inches sure sounds nice.
Alsus if you could please let us know how the set up is working for you and what it cost.
Is it possible to use a 3inch eye to eye and 2.75 inch stroke?
I'd imagine about $270 for the link and $500 or more for the shock....
As far as tires i'm new to the 24"ers but have been very satisfied with the arrow prime bite 2.75. The volume is good and rolls well. No flats yet in two months.....
Anyone else use or know of anyone using the avy links?

Now rockin the Big Hit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Arrow - yeah my Prime bite 24x2.75 has very short, beefy sidewalls, so I'd guess they can handle a lot of abuse.

You can PM "Trond" on the forum for detailed information.
But he told me it was much better/plusher than the original link with an RC.
