    I did one ride with a gnar up front and a barb on the rear, it's not a bad setup, there was about 3 to 4 inches of fresh snow, I was meeting several buddy's for the ride, it was the first snow of the season, and only had a couple hours to install the studs, and tire, so the front was the obvious choice. We did about 16 miles of tight single track, taking turns out front cutting trail, all three of them went down several times, I was the only one that stayed up right.
    The gnar is a night and day difference over the barb up front, I rode all last season with the barb's.
    Give it a try, what do you have to lose… I'm running both the gnar's studded after that ride, we've had some really cold weather, for the last couple of weeks, so it's hard to comment on rolling resistance.

    Thanks. Put the Gnar on the front last night. Headed to race in 30 min. -2 right now, feels like -15. 2 hour+ race, 5 mile loop. Should be interesting.

    Yup. Thanks! I probably wouldn’t go if it wasn’t so close to my house. Lol.

    Hello, does the 27.5x4.5 gnarwhal fit the RS bluto?

    Well first ride with the gnarwhals. I didnt notice a big speed difference.... i did put 2 psi each tire more (6/7) than the barbs (4/5)

    They were like velcro grip, its pretty icy here and they tackled it no issues, no powder to compare unluckily.

    My only issue is the axle has to be rearmost. Wish i could have got the 3.8” for the rear so i can slam the axle forward. Oh well... its a snowbike.
    Fatbike, XC bike, Gravel Bike....

    so I'm being driven Crazy by the 9587 headset standards in the market today. Can anyone tell me the part number for a crown race replacement for a stock FSA headset on a trek Farley 9?

    TIA

    I know your pain. I had to combine parts from 3 different headsets to put Mastodon fork on my Farley 7 without play.
