    High Rollers are more like 2.3ish, keep that in mind.

    not the high rollers!~!!! go with the minions, they have a better pattern. And I would say 2.5 in the front and 2.3 in the rear, good combo, makes you go faster, but they still stop well.

    What compound are your High Rollas? That will make a difference as well.

    High Rollas are good tires. If anyone argues that fact with you tell them to take a look at how many pros still use them, when they could be using any tire in the Maxxis lineup.

    Those are 60d

    ... I like 'em, I'd go to a softer Dur if your mostyly running on softer dirt etc...
    I think the traction vs width is a good debate to have...
    I feel like the narrower tire I can get away with the better as rolling resistant weight savings is the most efficient savings for racing DH imho... easier to get the wheels moving and keep inertia on a lighter tire.

    No?

    Discuss?

    Yep, 60's. Your Michy's I believe had a 50. So you may lose a bit of grip on wet rock or logs, but overall shouldn't be that bad. One positive note, the Hig Rollas will last quite a while. You should be fine.

    I was riding some Gazzy 2.6 in the back and after some horribles DH runs I put a Minion 2.5 40d. and that make a huge diference...
    The Gazza. looks better but f*** that...
    I highly recomend you that tire for the back...and you know that Maxxis run small...so get a 2.5 in the back and maybe a HR 2.7 in the front...

    you shouldn't concern yourself with the traction issue. i'd be concerned about the lack of air volume if i were as big a rider as you. time to add a few more PSI to prevent flats.......

    hey TS,
    you must be extremely spoiled or extremely desperate for NORBA points or a fat liar--maybe all three. You can't be that good since i've seen your FAT jumping skills( an INSANE 2ft lipped double) and i didn't see you at nationals.............---- im just sick of some hic kid from arkansas posting 1 sentance at a time 5 million times over and talkin smack--- buying the bike and talking a bunch doesn't make you a DH'er.........

    I run the 60a's in 2.5 and they hook up nice, i havent had a problem with sliding out on turns/loosing it on the wet rocks. Keep in mind the terrain/soil is alot different here in new england than socal so i might not be the best to take advice from, but overall i like them, its my rear tire of choice for right now.

    took em for a ride today on a very techie XC trail with a lot of switchbacks....held up nice but I still don't feel that secure. I did some changes on the bike. So trying to get used to it

    I think the tire pressure issues will be a bigger factor than traction. Your traction will go down some. As you've probably figured out the sidewalls on the maxxis tires aren't as burly and stiff as the michelins and intense . I run a 2.5 Minion front and 2.3 Minion rear on a 43lb bike, and I weigh 210. I really like the front, but the rear seems super skinny to me, just thinking about touching the rear brake when cornering and the arse end comes out. I think 2.3 is too skinny for a 40+ pound bike, imo.

    I ran 2.5 High Rollers for ages front and rear on my bullit, and had gobs of traction going uphill and down. If you like the high rollers, you might try the mobsters. I think they are even a little bit better than highrollers...
    If I get lost, don't go too fast!

    Hey brother, nada mucho... just workin for the man did the school thing for a while, but it just wasn't putting coin in my jean to play with.

    I just started riding again last week actually, I put it down for a while to get back to my roots, been shooting a lot of pool again, played some pball, been doing photography. Anyway it turns out that in my absence my little brother sold my Fueler!! So I'm on the mtb until I can put together a new 20" ride for street/dj. I've got my Auburn, but it isn't really cut out for that sort of stuff. Bruno has been trying to convince me to get a ht, and I've been seriously considering the gimp which takes a bmx bb, I can pull my old profiles and use those, I dunno. There's nothing quite like getting a nice new bike, we'll see.

    btw: my gf and I are considering moving down to socal, probably further south (we both hate, no, loathe essentially the entire LA area, cept there are some cool trails) maybe Oceanside or something. We may be hooking up on some rides again sooner or later.

    I did make a little mini-instructional video on how to bunnyhop, I thought it came out cool, posted it over in the beginner forum in case you want to check it out.

    I stick to the 2.8 Michy up front, and a Kenda 2.7 Navegal in the back. Us big boys need big rubber for ideal traction. We have a higher center of gravity, and require a bigger contact patch IMO.

    that is why I stay to the north of LA...hey when we going to Bootleg again??? I saw Bruno at the races. Hopefully you get a bike again. You have too much good skills to waste. Get a full suspension...you will rock it.

    Classic. I just assumed it was a photo of the W.O.D. I'm sure it was purely accidental. While on that thought- Saturday he actually had BOTH wheels off the ground while dropping into the W.O.D.

    the jumps are close together on a downhill slope. i was on my brakeless bmx bike and kept overshooting them because i wasn't able to slow down enough.....

    for the record, i've only been on them once, and have still jumped as many as jake and he built them.......

    I want pics now that they are sculpted damnit... sounds like they're hard to make ...

    I mean if Alloy is the only one who has made it through 5, I assume there are six?

    Old dude (me) prolly can't get 3?

    PICS!

    BTW WCH have you even tryed them on your 'little' rig?

    How's the back/wrists now? Did you crash on the Idaho set or what?

    because the bmx was begging to be dusted off, and i had completely forgotten about the no-brakes thingie untill i was already there. rhythms on a flat area don't make you really pick up as much speed as jumps on a downhill......

    Awe WCH. For the record you are nuts for hitting them brakeless on the 2-0. Mucho props.

    I do my typical rear-brake-yank the whole way down. I've now made the four pack- so I'm one up on you- but that's only cause I go there nearly evertyday at lunch, have spent the most time on them- plus I did most of the digging.

    I'm just egging you on because I know you'll be the first to make the whole five pack with mad style, and I need some good riders to show me how to do it right.

    I do tread design for Maxxis... and designed a good portion of the Minion.

    The Minion was introduced to be a more aggro version of a race tire.

    The Highroller is still, and always will be the standby which all others are measured.

    In the end, both are good choices, but I think that if you are coming from Michelin tires, you will like the feel of the Minion best.

    Get 2 of the Minion DHF ("front version"), and run them front and rear.

    If you like the volume of the Michelin, then go with the 2.7 Minion in front, and a 2.5 in the rear.

    Lastly, remember that tire width DOES NOT = traction. It's all about the design, casing, and most of all compounds. If that were the case, people would still be using 3.0 Nokians.

    Ken, What's the story with the Minion rear tire? I used one for one race season, and I hated it compared to the Kenda Navegal. Very unpredictable, and cornered for ***** in the loose stuff at Big Bear. So now I run it on the front of my Heckler, but for kicks.

    That tire is a love hate thing.. People like Mick Hanna ride nothing else... but then I've head of people like yourself who didn't like it.

    The tire was designed by the MSC guys over in Europe, as a compliment to the front tread.

    If you cut one of the side knobs a certain way (to make more of a side knob groove), it tend to be better for loose terrain.

    I'm 6' 2" and I weigh in at 229lbs and I ride the 2.5 Minion in the Front and a HighRoller 2.5 in the Back. Sticks Like Glue. I go to the gym everyday and I am looking to get my Weight to around 208lbs. According to a Body Fat %, that is my Ideal weight for my Height. I Am hoping when I reach that Goal by the beginning of the Season, It will still feel the same.

    hey [email protected],
    Since you design tires, what do you think of the michelin comp 16 and 24. The 16 is my all time favorite and runs without a glitch tubeless. Just wondering what you think of the high roller like design....? People have been telling me to try high rollers but maxxis tubeless(1 ply and tons of permeable rubber) sucks compared to michy(dual ply, lighter, nonpermeable plastic liner). Thanks man

    Well, Stockton designed the Highroller back in the day, and he was a big fan of the Michelin stuff.

    I still think the Highroller is a better overall performer though, as the Maxxis compound is less likely to "chunk" when it wears. I'm not entirely sure of the Michelin process, but it appears to be foamed by the looks of the worn tires I've seen.

    Lastly, Maxxis has a few various casing options, so make sure you had the DH one when comparing... apples to apples and whatnot.

    Chunk = when the tire tends to not wear evenly.. when chunks get ripped out of it.

    Foamed = what rubber looks like when it's about to chunk. It looks almost like there are little airbubbles in the compound.

    THESE ARE SLANG TERMS.... not to discredit them though.

    I have tubeless Mavic EX823 UST rims. Why is it such a biatch to get air and have those 2.5 highrollers seal up with stans. Must have taken me about 8 times on one and 15 for the other to get a complete seal. My front still leaks a little at the rim. The michy sealed easy and right away

    What you need to do is use a sharp burst of air to set the Maxxis tires. This is really true of any UST.

    Then, once it's set, just let air out as needed.

    UST is not the best choice for all-out-DH anyways.... bend your rim once, and there goes your air.

    You are better off with a standard set-up.

    I think so too, but then our riding conditions are totally different than what you ride.

    Currently on Michelin 2.8 & 2.5, with a set of 2.7 & 2.5 Nevegal to try. Before that ran old style Intense, High Roller, then Mobster.

    yeah..

    well bending rims in any situation is very bad but you have to be fat/sloppy/stupid to bend rims often. I did it once but the rim was not properly tensioned and it was on dog bonde @ northstar going fasttt.....the crash somehow wedged the wheel between me and a tree. There are few things that i advocate with all my heart --- UST, polycarbonate bashguards, FSR, the Fox DH40 and reeses peanut butter cups. To each his own but if your bending rims, its not gonna matter if its tubeless or not, you got bigger problems. The key to any wheel is who builds it. I would feel more confident with my local(baycali) professional build with XC rims than a crappy build with mavic 721's.

    So you've ridden the DH40? You still haven't replied or made on basis on your comments about me.
