How you likin' the Nokians? They're great compared to the old tires on my Cannondale, but I threw my Michelins on my Dawg yesterday and it handled even better in the corners. Of course, the only limiting factor on my puppy's performance so far is the rider.:o

Siu Blue Wind 07-16-06 12:02 AM

Have not much to compare it to besides what are on my other bikes. But so far, I am impressed with the bike in general. It doesn't scare me like the Cake. I feel that I can be a little more expressive on this one. I am so glad that I didn't let it get away with all what I went through to get it.

Which Michelins?

I'm really glad you managed to get it, too. Never ridden a Cake, and I was a lot less enthused about the Dawg than my buddy was, but it's definitely the best bike I've owned.

Shoot, I can't remember which tires they are.:o They're XC, tho and have a softer compound for better traction. 2.1", but they don't look any smaller than the Nokians to me. They have a little more aggressive tread and closer-spaced knobs, too. I'll find out what model tomorrow and tell you. I can't go outside to check right now...it's dark out there!:eek:

Like I ride most freeride and allmountain type stuff and some DJ thrown in allthough I mostly use my BMX for jumps. ANd when I got one I have yet to have my chain drop. and It's awesome

I recomend the E.13 SRS, I have a 32T and 36T chain ring I run depending on what I'm riding

I'd have more motivation to buy one if the dirt jumps werent all in a pack real close to each other, because i hit them all without pedaling in between. Then i just keep pedaling because my chains been knocked off and it comes back on and its all good again. yay

That seat post makes it a boinger.

EJ123 07-20-06 10:07 PM

Super Duper boinger

Defiance 07-20-06 10:34 PM

That's the full squish of seatposts I guess? That puts the little spring in my moms schwinn seatpost to shame.

Kornholyo_1968 07-21-06 06:30 PM

Thanks for the compliments...Yep, that is a Cane Creek Thudbuster Seatpost, it has made my Trek more bearable to ride on rough terrain..not quite a boinger really...here are some of the reviews..
