    NNs turning the right way?

    Just got a bike with NNs and according to the rotation markings, they are going the correct way. Looking at them tho makes me wonder if turning them around will yield less rolling resistance, maybe at the sake of a bit of traction. Dunno. FWIW they're tubeless.

    I'd like to hear from some NN fans to see what they've done. Thanks.

    The direction is about cornering grip.

    Either way makes little difference for rolling resistance, or drive/braking traction.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Too bad your tires are on backwards

    Just kidding. If the tire is marked to rotate a specific way, I would run it. I had the same weird feeling about a set of Hutchinson Toro 29er tires. The front and rear determine rotation. They swore by it and so I tried it.
