    A trip to www.ventanausa.com could've nulified the need for this post....or the search function.
    Luckily there's plenty of people here that like to share their knowledge.

    Since I'm already on MTBR I just did a quick search and came up with this from RSutton:

    //////The Ciclon comes standard with a 7.875 x 2.00 RP23 and 5" rocker.//////


    BTW: I'm sorry for coming off harsh. I was sitting in an airport with a two hour delay, after having survived a hellish hike out of the Grand Canyon in blizzard conditions. I've never felt that close to death man! South Kaibob Trail with 60mph continuous winds blowing snow not only sideways but up off the ground as well, with gusts up to 115knots(anyone know the mph conversion?) according to the Ranger we talked to afterwards. What a 'vacation'.

    Ouch!

    Did you remember your crampons? Being on that trail in slippery conditions and wind is no joke.

    So that's where the wind and snow went!
    Landed in Denver Inter. Airport in that snow storm on Monday evening, THAT was a bumpy ride!

    Then had to drive in a Dodge Nitro, (Nutjob would be a better description) to Golden, CO while it was blowing and snowing, Hell of an intro to Colorado Winter weather for me and my work mates. Next morning it was BRIGHT blue skys and calm... amazing.

    Flying home tomorrow... Forecast? - Snow showers and High winds 40+ mph. That ought to be a fun take off.

    And not positive on the Knots to Mph exact conversion but I believe 115knots=105is mph.
    WOW.

    Glad you made it out!

    yup, luckily we made a stop off at the Village Market and bought some crampons before heading down just to be safe as there was already a lot of snow up top. They truly were life savers on those hogsbacks in blizzard conditions.

    Still in amazement that everything turned out as well as it did, as it could have flipped the other way real easy.

    Ciclistagonzo-fly home safe man. Good weather awaits you here! Looking good for the next few weeks.
