    Gazzaloddi backwards?

    I accidentally put my Gazz Jr. on backwards (front tire). Anyone tried this?

    I've accidently put many tires on backwards...... Just check the tread ramping or sidewall to see if it is directional.

    its unidirectional. I saw a rotation arrow heading only in one direction. What I mean is, has Gazz users tried running the tires backwards.

    I have a Gazz on the back of my AM bike and I've run it backwards by accident, I couldn't tell, but I wasn't looking for differences. Then again, that's the back tire.

    im sure the added traction you may get wouldnt be worth the added rolling resistence they make them directional for a reason and those things grip like mad anyways, you can probably ride up a tree with those things

    Yes, by accident I did too. Broke a finger and rang my bell in a horrific crash as a result of loss of braking power on a steep, hardpack fireroad.

    Ouch. but I got it pointing the right direction again, so no worries there.
