I was watching a redbull bike competition on TV from Whistler over the weekend. :sigh:

It's pretty awesome if you ski too.

No bueno. I am toying with the idea of moving the good 35c to the rear, and putting one of the 40c Nanos on the front. Thoughts? My biggest gripe with the Nano (aside from it not fitting the bike) was that they felt really slow on the road, even at 60psi, and even compared to the 35s. Is a 35/40 combo the best of both worlds, or worst of both worlds?
WTB replaced my rear Nano 40C TCS that leaked through the casing after drowning it in Stans sealant. They even included a new pint of sealant.

Yup, you pay a small price in rolling resistance for the 40's but the gains outweigh that if the sections that matter or rough or loose. I gapped all the guys in my class in a fast deep sandy section of last weekends cross race with the 40's. I have a set of UCI legal 33c tubs I never run any more.

Not that yo have to run in sand very often but the extra width is an advantage on pretty much any surface except pavement. There is a reason UCI strictly controls tire width in cross, because it's a distinct advantage.

My old training buddy Brent, same course. I hit that section full speed, everyone else braked before hitting the sand. That got me the gap I rode to the win. So yeah, I'm a fan of 40's.

Andrew,

Just like others have mentioned, send pic to WTB, they're good people. If they balk, I can process the RMA for you.

p.s. you need more tire clearance.

Pics sent to WTB a couple nights ago, they agree it's a defect and want it back. The problem is that they don't have any stock to replace it with. Nick, does Mojo have any on the shelf?

nope

We're a mountain shop and the only road bikes in the store are mine .

Need a stack of 6" travel Enduro stuff? Got you covered. Need an e-tube cable or carbon rim pad-inserts? nope.

Working on tracking something down all the same.

Thanks for this. I'm on 33mm Hutchinson Toros, will go up in size next year.

Do you have any advice on me "enjoying racing" or being a dick about the road cat-1 and cat-2s racing cat-5 CX? I might have podiumed last night if it weren't for those guys, including the state cat-3 crit champ (now a 2).

You lost me. How to be OK with getting your *** kicked by stronger riders?
Welcome to bike racing.

Most CX and local XC series push riders up in class to keep sandbagging to a minimum. Our local XC series is 12 races on Tuesday nights. Beginner series is only 6 races though. Top 3-5 in each age group get bumped to Sport for second half of series, whether they like it or not. Otherwise, just train harder.

For me, the only complaining in cycling should be my legs to me.. "please stop".

There was a cat-2 bro who rides on the Giant road team racing in the cat-5 CX races. It's retarded.

So do something about. Tell the promoter. And train harder.

Well, I'm definitely not going to train harder, I thought cycling was supposed to be easy.

Almost no maintenance other than trans fluid drain/fill, only 16 valves to adjust lash on at 150k, K24, tons of room to work, wagon, silence, secret compartment, it cannot be beaten.

@hustler Thule t2 is the only hitch-rack allowed.



Redbull Rampage is live today. It's not really bike riding, but very entertaining.

If you had ever seen a 1-Up, you'd change your mind.

Thanks, going to watch live, I hope.

With the 1-up rack can it adjust to different wheel sizes without tools? it looks like you have to unbolt/move something to carry say a bmx bike vs a 29" mtb...

I own 29er and road bike stuff so there is not need for this. It's not tough though.

That would matter to someone who carries a variety of bikes, unlike Trey.

None of these bottom-support racks can carry what I need to carry on the back of the EPA-wagon, which is usually my MTB, wife's bike, daughters' 24" MTB and the (now infamous) half-bike. Advantage GlideAWAY Bike Rack, Advantage GlideAWAY 4 Bike Carrier
