    ENDOS Unidirectional?

    Do ENDOS have a suggested rotational direction?

    The flat side of the triangles facing for drive traction in the back and braking traction in the front (opposite directions).

    Really? I have both of mine with the triangles pointing forward. Should I flip one of them?

    OMG, you're lucky to still be alive! Flip now or face "real"* consequences.

    Yup, I think one could note a difference if we were talking about Larrys, but Endos are too slick for there to be much difference. That said, if you're having traction issues it couldn't hurt to try.

    I ask the same question in a mail to surly at dec.'07, that's the answer:
    Code:
    Volker,
     
    There is a general feeling around here that it doesn't really matter which way 
    the tread goes. The Pugsley gets its traction from the big contact patch and 
    the tread isn't actually so important. Some of us run the tires with both front 
    and rear in the chevrons forward (on top of the tire), and one of us runs the 
    rear opposite. Any way you do it you'll be right.
     
    Thanks,
