    Minion DHRII 2.5!?

    Yes please!!

    Use the current 2.4 DHRII's... but, longed for similar tread in a wider case.

    Looks like I'll get my wish!

    Really like a 2.5 out back.

    A 2.5 DHRII could also be a goer up front

    That's cool but what I really want is a 2.4 DHF in EXO+.

    Too much tire out back, only slightly, might run at a resort in DD casings, but too limited use in that respect for me to be interested. Wider tires generally slower, but of course maxxis sometimes goes overboard with their sizes not matching up with reality.

    Thatís exactly what Iíve been running in back for the past 3-4 months on 30mm rims. I think it might a little slower than the 2.5 Aggressor but I liked its climbing and braking traction a little better.

    Size isnít huge and the exo + casing has been tough. Iíve cut the Agressor with DD casing but have had no cuts on this one despite some pretty aggressive and sharp rocky rides. Close to 1000 miles on it now and needs replacing.

    This one came from Jenson or Wheel World but that was back in January or February before COVID while I was waiting for my new bike to ship.

    That would be great but a 2.4 Assegai in EXO+ would be the ticket for aggro trail!

    Cheers,

    I really would like to take that Fugitive for a spin. So are you going to keep the raw look clean or just let it go?

    You mean like polish it or something? Heck no. I barely wash it. Thatís why I got raw. Iím death on any kind of painted frame.

    My raw delerium top tube has turned white from sweat & oxidation. Polished everywhere I used Velcro to hold my spare tubes. Just looks a bit odd. I agree with the raw look.
