His bike is my ideal bike. Slightly heavy for XC, but it works none-the-less, and can still tear up the DH and freerides. Nice tires, and holy aggressive tread!

I might have to look into those when I get some winter tires... we don't get that much snow here, but our winter weather is really yucky in that we get lots of sleet, slush, and various other yucky stuff. We do get snow and it does tend to pack pretty hard. I'm sure a tire with closer tread would pack right up. Those look like they'd clear out pretty well.

Not very related but...


Kona24, when are you considering a new frame/ bike? What happened to your Giant?

Currently, how are you enjoying your stuff and what's the most extreme trick/wipeout/jump you've pu thte bike through?

I'm not selling the frame, even when I get the new frame, the old one is going to become a singlespeed.

When are you considering a new frame/ bike? What happened to your Giant?

Currently, how are you enjoying your stuff and what's the most extreme trick/wipeout/jump you've pu thte bike through?

I haven't rode a giant in over a year, I am going to be building up a Cowan in a few months. I really like my stuff. For me, I threw a whip down on a road gap.

Do you plan on selling the Giant?


Heh, back to the dj frame, eh kona? Can't get enough of it... I just noticed it had an adjustable dropout and gyro rotor tabs. Can you actually replace the dropout if it breaks?

The giant has been disposed of for quite awhile now. Yes they can be replaced.
