Kickstart: how do you like the Kojaks? Any pitfalls to be aware of?
They are my first fat slicks, but I really like them.
Traction is very good in the current wet fall conditions on pavement, gravel trails and even short grass. I've only experienced a couple of momentary loss of traction on leaf covered mud.
I have a couple hundred yards of very steep, twisting single track on my commute, its too steep to ride up in the am. but is no problem maintain full control and braking going down it in the dark in the pm.

other than avoiding mud, there isn't anything to worry about.
