    New question here. Kenda Kinetics 2.35 front...

    (non-DH--shiggy's got the DH one covered)...anyone running one of these with a rigid. How ya like it? Thinking it would make a good snow tire with some homemade spikes.

    Had em on the monocog...

    not a bad tyre for $18, very much like a motoraptor 2.4, only I found the rear tyre to hard for dry conditions, spun easily, however since the Atlantic is almost upon us might not be bad. Plus if ya throw spikes in it, the actual tire characteristics aren't as important as big hard knobs... I'll leave you with big hard knobs...

    In fact, quite the opposite.

    You up for a Monday ride with the other slackers or is it nose to the grindwheel for you?

    I gots em front and rear, but with a sussy fork. I have pinch flatted the rear at lower preasures, but it is usually towards the end of a ride when i get tired and sloppy.
