Been putting miles on the road bike again, but my heart's not into it. Tuesday/Thursday I ride with 3 other people at 5:30 am. Same route, every damn week. It gets beyond mind numbing but they're set on the routes and won't change them for the world. I'd rather spare an hour during the day to do hill repeats than ride the same roads every time.

Getting a little tired of the roadie "holier than thou"mentality, so goal is to ride my Salsa more often this year.

I got em because you suggested them :) just like I will jump off that bridge... just tell me...

I used them all day at Rays mtb park yesterday.. set the psi @ 25 and they were great on wood and concrete too. Great traction all over

sweet... I still have tubes :a-farmboy: but I really cant wait to do some of these minor mods and get more riding in this year. with the repair stand and all the tools I already have I should be able to do nearly anything to the bike myself. There are great videos of 'how to' on the internet too for mtb. grip has been a problem with my crappy xr1 bontrager tires from the beginning. I finally have the confidence to run much lower pressures which has helped but the nobby nic and air fork over spring will be huge!

Go tubeless. I've been tubeless for a long time and being able to run 15psi at times is great.

I bought two 29x2.25 nobby nics and now thinking about returning one and buying a 2.35 wide for the front... what do you run?

Do you have pics of your tires? The 2.35 came this weekend and is supposedly a newer tread pattern than the 2.25 ones I got off of Jenson USA... what doesn't make sense though is that the 2.25 to me seems to have a better tread pattern/design, is lighter, and the tire wall graphics lettering is more lively and brighter...
