    So much depends on the terrain you ride on. I'm typically riding loose, loose over hardback, steep, and rocky trails.
    On the enduro bike the Assegai is king on anything loose, just grips for days.
    I also like to flick the back end around a bunch, but still need braking grip on the back for those really steep trails. The DHR2 is a perfect rear tire for me for most days, but I do love the fast rolling speed of the Aggressor. The Aggressor has a bunch of small, closely spaced blocks which dig in really well when you lay on the brakes, and well supported side blocks for cornering. It still gets loose (which I like), but rolls quick and has a vey reasonable weight.
    But for the trail bike, which sees more hard pack, more climbing, but some loose terrain, I felt like the Dissector would be fun. I was disappointed in its grip honestly, and it's down to those short blocks. It's pattern is great (wide, flat, well spaced blocks), but they are short.

    **90% of my riding is also in bone dry conditions

    Some trails were just meant for ebikes…
    3k of road climb for this fun flowy singletrack lends itself well to Tesla power.
    It also JUST rained, so trails were super tight and fun.

    Well I decided to switch things up. The Sentinel was too cramped. Sold today and bought this. Feels good to have a pretty much new bike.

    Want to ask you guys a question on tread pattern. I picked up these WTB Velociraptor 2.1s for my older Diamondback 26. They are replacing Kenda Klaws, so I bought basically the same tread pattern the bike came with. The middle tread of the rear tire is a bit different than what was shown in the photo that was shown on the listing (Amazon purchase that came from Planet Cyclery). I’ve emailed PC the photo and am waiting to see what they say, but does this look right? The middle tread is straight across in listing, but this is what it came as. I also attached the listing photo.DF321DFD-B12A-475A-B2AA-773D9240EF4C.jpg505650A2-921E-498A-9303-9267554C2109.jpg

    Just thought I’d ask you all - I’m not very familiar with tires for MTB and was just looking for something to replace the old, worn tires with so my son would hopefully ride a bit with me.

    Thanks for the help.

    I have no experience with these tires other than being aware of the name, but a check of WTB’s website shows different tread patterns for front and rear fitment. Your tire seems to be the front.

    Thanks for the reply. I also purchased the front tire as well and it’s what is shown on both the listing and the WTB site. So like you, seeing that it’s not what the rear pattern shows has me wondering if this happens to be an error in manufacturing in the mold or something.

    Thanks again for the response - helps me know I’m not off thinking its not right.

    I just got back from a week trip to NC/Kanuga, got in so many laps thanks to the eebs. Getting back on a normal bike in 90° weather really sucks. Finding the funding for an ebike sucks, I really dont want to spend the money on one.

    They make a great N+1 but I definitely would have one as my only ride. In all honesty, I got it as a bike for the wife. She couldn't keep up on the climbs so I thought the power would help. I definitely did, but she didn't love the extra weight. I didn't ride it for about 6 months after we got it, because I thought "ebikes are dumb". She asked me to tune it up for her, so I took it out on a few rides to get the suspension, brakes, shifting, etc dialed and realized how fun it really was. It's a shared bike now, she still rides it.
    One thing that I love about it is that when I get back on the enduro bike, which weighs about 34lbs, it feels like a feather weight. It's funny how easy it is to get used to the extra heft.

    My wife and I spent the weekend at the Kingdom Trails. We were lucky to have a nice weather window, since it's been so rainy in the northeast this summer. We rode as much as our legs could handle, and still only hit maybe 25-30% of the trails there. The trails are great, and contrast quite a bit from my local trails. Local to me, there are tons of rocks and roots, and climbs are typically just a straight line up-hill. It was really nice to ride smoother trails and well planned switch backs.

    There were plenty of Tacomas and 4runners there too!

    I think ~2 years ago the shop I work at started going all in on ebikes (as far as riding them goes). I'm one of the last to adapt; but its coming - more of a saving/availability thing right now.

    Clip from one of the guys from the trip.

    Awesome! I’ll be there in a couple of weeks so long as the rain holds off.

    Got the week of with the old girl. She’s doing great so far on the trails. Just gotta get her fitness level up!

    I finally tried the 23ish miles from Wasatch Crest down to Pipeline two weeks ago and it was one of the best routes I've ever ridden. Highly recommend it to anyone passing through PC or SLC.

    not enough.
    Or you can be a sadist like me and pedal up from the PCMR parking lot...and then do crest solo down to canyons...and back to the pcmr parking lot.

    meh. It's okay I guess. ;P ;P


    side note in general though, holy shit we're getting tons of rain. It's like Mother Earth is making up for lack of snow with too much rain!
    Can't ride in this weather! boooo

    Rode down to Palace Station a couple days ago. Downhill had me wishing for my mountain bike, but uphill the gravel bike was spot on. 62AD7233-F12D-47DD-8AFF-36E04F0ED392.jpg 3B3C4AC8-857F-4F5F-8549-0FDE3E22DB70.jpg
