    Semi light weight tank.

    With new wheels (and pedals and cages, no rubber) came in at just a tick over 22lbs.





    Looks a little scrawny without rubber!



    So I thought I would add some tubeless racing ralphs and be close to 24lbs, but I think I will go for durability and go with maxxis crossmarks and be a little over 25, still not too bad.

    But these are only around 675 each (150 more for tubes) so that`s not bad for a tank, the wheels a little heavier than the XTRS.



    Gonna try them out tonight.

    WOW these Nokian WXC 300 are AWSOME. I have some Nokian Mount and Ground that are really good over 90% of the conditions but
    you still have to be careful on corners and the slick uneven glare icy stuff. On these you seem to be able to bomb over almost anything.
    I went around some slick corners way faster than the M&G's and I could have cornered even harder. I just hope I don't get too over confident.
    But I did go up a totally smooth 100 foot section of ice on about a 4-5 degree slope, and just stood up and hammered up it and didn't
    notice any slippage. I also flew over some frozen rutty sections and it was like summer riding, these are great!
