I bought them on the recommendations of many and they sat around for quite a while while I accepted the inevitability of trying what looks like an asphalt commuter tire. I started out pushing them in the fine-dust-over-hardpack twisties on Tangle of Trails and Point Six at the 'nut and just seemed limited by my tentativeness more than the tire. I've been ramping up on them, including to the point of drifting corners and they are just predictable and have plenty of traction. They stick to the sand at Rocky Hill like magnets. I'm currently running them at ~24psi and may drop another pound or so (i go at low pressure pretty conservatively). I weigh 205 and ride rigid SS mostly. I have yet to take them out to Pace Bend to see if I can rip a sidewall open.

    Geax AKA & Saguaros
    Bonty XDX TLR
    Schwalbe Racing Ralph
    have all served me well.
    Maxxis IKONs are on the menu... there are just too many interesting treads (finally) for me to stick to one.

    Thank you, going to give the Saguaros a run!

    This was taken during a pre-ride before the Wilderness 101. Not sure exactly sure where we were but the race starts in Coburn, PA which is close to State College.

    Does this count? We built a bridge after we lost too many people to poorly timed bunny hops This is high desert in Southern Idaho. Many thanks to Mikey on the Madone for the pics.

    Thank you!
    Adrisuta, there was a metal fence covering the bridges in case of rain.
    Tires are non ust folding aspens on ztr crest without tubes, they are weightless and grips way better then expected.

    Thanks for clarifying. Despite the tricky situation you look firmly glued to the boards. If that's due to Aspens, I might try them too. BTW, next week I'm getting the same fork you have. Hope then to post something here one day.

    @Raskladnoy: how do you ride those barriers with finesse? Do you hit them with your front wheel or hop over them?!

    I was thinking the same thing. If that were me, my crests would have several dents in them!

    Yeah I love Utah I was a raft guide for 5 years and my favorite trips were the 3 week runs down the green on the Colorado river through Utah.

    I did not break the Coco, I broke the Paragon sliding dropouts which you could argue might be the harder task.
    No more sliders for me, horizontal dropout and a bolt on hub now. Simple is good.

    Thanks. The best part is you can not see the rider's face.

    What's important is that CGR got an entirely new Coconino at no cost at all.
    CGR is a very effective test pilot, and I greatly appreciate his imput as per my frame design.
    He is now running my new Coco-Moto dropouts on which myself & Vulture Cycles colaborated using our over 25yrs of building experience - this is V. 2.0 = the derailleur hanger and rack mounts can be left or removed according to the user's wishes.

    You CAN build a bike that would never bust no matter what, but it would be so heavy no one would want to ride it.

    Carry on............

    this is a trail called edge in cameron park. as usual the picture belies the steepness/technicality of the trail, but if you've been there you know.

    first picture is me, fixed and rigid navigating the descent...

    It's easy to see the problem, 26" wheels + suspension fork dive + root to catch the front wheel = OTB. I went over the bars numerous times on my FS bike. With my rigid Monkey, I have gone over the bars once and that was due to a large hole covered over by leaves.

    Awesome to see rigids doing it all!

    Iwas going to attempt to put in a few shots but I do not have a high enough post count, so I will try to amend that.

    Here is another short vid!

    <object><param name="allowfullscreen" value="true"></param><param name="movie" value="http://www.facebook.com/v/10150174863551790"></param><embed src="http://www.facebook.com/v/10150174863551790" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="1"></embed></object>

    You have to click on the vid to get it to play. It was hacked out of FB and I am no IT guy. I love riding rigid SS. This is my aluminum Rockhopper sl ss. You can hear the headset creaking like a bed in a hotel room that rents by the minute. I love the direct feel that rigid gives you and you really do have to use the body to absorb everything. I have ridden every type of MTB from this to DH bikes and I love them all for their own strengths and weaknesses. But I love the fact that there is no faking it on a rigid SS.. You are either in shape or not, you either have skills or you don't.. The bike will not hide your flaws!

    What kind of bike is SuperDan on? Looks like some nice terrain.
