    No actual ride pictures yet but one post-ride shot - - Says Cat 2 but it's really the 50+ Open (a combined Cat 1/2 class). I believe I was the only 60+ in our field of 16; I'm very happy with 7th on...

    I have gone 3C with everything. I used to use Super-Tacky a lot, because: 1) they were cheaper; and 2) I could afford to replace more often at my pricing. But I found I preferred both the better wear...

    I disliked the original DHR but was all pumped when Maxxis released the 'improved' DHR 2; so put one on the back of the DH rig. I did part of a season on it and went back to the tried-and-true...

    I'll help a little - - years the Hardrock FS was made were 1994-96 and 1999-2000. You can narrow it down by (to a degree) comparing components to what is HERE or with other model years listed on the...
