    Superstock was cool enough to invite me out to Noble to do some shuttling. Needless to say, we had an awesome day of DW Spot dueling. SS is the man - that dude can seriously shred it. He has some more footage including a sick run using my GoPro that you'll probably see later. Enjoy.

    Nice. I like that chunky stuff at 5:50

    One of these days SS should right a book on maching corners.
    Faster is better, even when it's not.

    Hey, it was good riding with you. Four runs down Noble the first day was a good amount of riding. On Sunday, Will and I climbed the road and then shuttled one more. I think we got our fill!

    I can't believe how much the GoPro flattens out the Jackhammer! You would never know those rocks are deep, front wheel grabbers from the vid. I like how the jump section turned out at the end. Pretty cool.

    Nice vid guys!

    I'd love to shuttle Noble but unfortunately my buddies are goaters and will never shuttle noble.

    I was going to say the same thing: the vid does not do the chunk justice. Stairway to Hell (AKA, Jackhammer) has really deep crevices with wheel grabber all over. What I have noticed is the higher the camera location is the flatter the trails become. It woud be nice if you could mount the GoPro lower on the helmet. Can't believe you go that fast on a 5 spot through those rocks, though the fast the better, I suppose.

    Where is that jump section?

    The GoPro is definitely disappointing in regards to detail and I think it's a bit too wide angle. Shuttle or climb, 2 more runs on Sunday would have been sweet. Thanks again - that was a good day for sure.

    Perhaps the upcoming HD version with 1080P @ 30fps and 720P @ 60 fps will fix that. I do like the wide angle, however.

    My run through wasn't all that fast, respectable but probably not "fast". I enter with good intentions then something usually goes wrong. It's really easy to get backed up. I think SS needs to post up his footage through that section.

    I don't think the jump section is part of noble. It runs along the road below the very bottom trail head.

    Put the camera on their chests. That might help with terrain flattening.

    Just got back from our first ever 2009 Death ride, was amazing. Wooded Hills, Logger, Penny Pines, Indian Creek, Pine Mountain trail, Sunrise HW, Shortcut, BLT, Cemetery , Fire Road & Beer!

    Sorry for all the weird trail names, its just what our group calls them. Total ride was 27 miles.

    The speed this bike was able to maintain through some of these sections was really quite impressive. This was my first ride on my new DW spot and I felt comfortable on it right away. I don't think I ever hit jackhammer that well on the old spot. The DW just seems to float over the rocky chunk better without getting hung up. Hard pedaling out of turns is very good, the bike really goes. I'll post a more thorough review once I get some more time on it but the first impression was

    I'm running an '09 55 ATA micro. I also tried out the Conti Rubber Queen 2.4 tubeless soft compound tires. They are as big as a Maxxis 2.5 but quite a bit lighter. No issues in 6 runs of chunk. These were part of the reason I was mowing down those rocks, the rear-ward axle path is the other. Oh, and they look bigger in person. For some reason they don't look so big in these photos.

    That vid was fun to watch...you were flyin' in some spots [pun!]

    BTW - just curious what rims [how wide?] you're running with those fat tires? And the green - looks wonderful........I miss my green spot.....

    I'm running a Mavic 823 in the back and a rhyno lite XL up front (it just won't die). Both are about 29mm wide and the tires still bulge out. They have some serious volume! BTW, the black chili compound is super soft and gets excellent traction. Its on par with the slow reezay Maxxis compound.

    I liked the green so much on my last spot that I have to get it again. I think having the front and rear match looks better than the ano rear.

    Here's a snippet of a video with a chest mount GoPro on a similar trail. I think for how fast SS is going, the detail is actually pretty good. His video seems to be less bumpy as well...

    Any chance of a seatstay/chainstay bridge clearance shot with those RQ's?

    Trying to get a volume comparison to the Chunder SX 2.3's I'm running.

    Gorgeous bike, superstock! I really dig the granny smith green, I think that will be the color of my next bike.

    Awesome videos as well and fun looking riding!

    Thanks! If you do get that color be aware that it looks even better in person.

    These tires are a tight fit as I feel they should really be labeled as 2.5s. The DW spot frame can handle them if your wheel is dished right. The issue I have is with the tight clearance on my DRS. It will rub a little every now and then under hard pedaling loads.

    I really like the compound of the RQ's (they call it black chili). It offers amazing grip. The volume of these tires let them roll over anything. They are very light for a tire this size too. The tradeoff is in cornering. They do raise the BB some and they will flex some under hard cornering while running lower pressure. The compound however does grip very nicely in the corners.

    Pics:







    I also got the Sunline 711mm wide 19mm riser bar. I really like them so far. It really gives the bike a more aggressive feel at the cockpit.

    Those things are huge, along the lines of the old Panaracer Fire FR 2.5's.

    Thanks for the pix and review. I'll add them to my ever expanding tires-to-try list.

    I'm using the small loop option for the front der cable. Here is a close up.

    Maxxis 2.5's must not be very big. I found a deal on the Rubber Queens and thought I'd give 'em a try. They're considerably smaller than the Panaracer Fire 2.4 (which measures ~2.6 at its widest). The Continental measures under 2.3. I'm going to give these a try front & back later today but will probably end up putting the Panaracer back up front due to its girth and use the RQ in the back since the tire I've been using, Kenda Kinetics 2.35, has been discontinued.

    As you can see from my little video snippet, most of the trails around here are pretty rocky; a nice fat tire up front really helps on that kind of stuff.

    Edit: The Rocket Queen is a rather tall tire, especially for its width. The Panaracer Fire FR, at 2.56" wide, has a diameter of 26.875", the Rocket Queen 2.4 while being 2.3" wide, has a diameter of 27". The Kenda Kinetics 2.35 has a diameter of 26.25".
