    Well buy mine at half the cost and if it doesn’t work out you still get a good deal ;)

    In all seriousness, GG has a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you buy a bike from them and aren’t
    Completely stoked, they will refund the cost and take the bike back, no questions asked.

    Very cool. Did you pick up those forks later or have the bosses welded on? My little brother has one of the early race frames, and there are no front brakes.

    Here's mine.

    New Seargeant v3 is nice, but aluminum and 157x12 and more travel.

    yeah, I've always liked the RSD bikes. The problem is that none of them appear to check every box on my list. Even their 29+ BigChief only has limited travel and very few mounts for attachments. I also don't want to deal with yet another wheel standard in my stable, so the Sergeant's 157x12 is a dealbreaker for me.

    Right now, my very short list of bikes that check every last box consists of just the 2019 Vassago VerHauen and trusty 'ole Surly Krampus.

    I just finished this conversion on my bike. One small thing I had to get that I didn't know about was chain ring spacers. They are about ten bucks for the spacers and longer chain ring bolts. I got these ones. The bolt is so long that it stick's out a bit but doesn't interfere with anything on my bike. But with the 1X systems the chain line is pretty bad even when it's "spot on" so these helped me a lot.

    I'd love to hear some feedback on the tire combo, more specifically the assegai...

    I have been running the Assegai 27.5x2.5 EXO+ for the last 2 months and absolutely love it. By no means the fastest option out there, but provides ample grip and traction.

    ROAD TRIP!!!!!! ah yes, Wyoming...where 90mph feels like 60...

    [​IMG]

    Into Jackson WY for a wedding last weekend, hung out for an extra day to get some biking in. Pedaled a couple trails outside town and then spent most of a day riding Teton for some lift service. Pretty fun, considering only about 400' of vertical for the bike trails. Makes for 15min laps which was actually kinda nice compared to home(1lap=1hr). Great diversity and levels of difficulty. Very flow-y, buffed and smooth(made for a happy ladyfriend). If you haven't been its worth the price of the lift ticket!

    I've run a bunch of different tires; On the Schwalbe front the Marys, Nics, Hans, Razors. E13s, Michelins, and Maxxis DHF, DHR, DHR2, Agressors, and Assegais. My go-to combos settled on Marys on the DH rig, and on the enduro I run DHF/DHR2 shoulder seasons, and DHF/Agressors dry season. I've been all over the place on casings, from single ply to DH. On the insert front, tried Huck Norris, Huck Norris DH, ProCore, and now CushCore lite. I liked Huck Norris, but the DH version is almost the same weight as the CushCore lite, and doesn't have any of the damping properties (but much easier to install). I like the tuneability of the ProCore, so that's what's on the DH rig now.
    For all around riding the DHF was the go-to for a LONG time, occasionally swapping to the Magic Mary in the wetter months. I don't think I'll be running either tire any longer. I ran the Assegai in both EXO+ and DD, and they both have excellent grip and are super predictable. It's like a combo of the MM and DHF. It doesn't have the initial float the DHF sometimes has before it bites, so no weird catch-then-grip sensation in the loose (like the MM). But it still feels excellent on berms, buffed trails, and rolls smooth on features (like the DHF). Grippy in the loam, fast and stiff on the hard-pack, grippy on the loose. I currently see no downsides to these tires, and no reason to switch around anymore. That said, it hasn't seen really sloppy conditions yet.
    If you're going to run the EXO+ version, I think you'd be better off with the DD. The DD comes in the Max GRIP compound (the exo and exo+ doesn't), and it's just a hair heavier than the exo+. The casing feels significantly stronger, and provides a nice damp ride that the lighter casings couldn't match. But the weight difference between the exo and DD is significant. But, no worries about pinch flatting that DD.
    I pulled the CushCore out of the front tire today and went for a ride, and can't say I noticed that much of a difference, either good or bad. I think the Assegai DD Grip and Agressor DD CushCore is going to be on there for a while. At least until I need more grip from the back.

    Did somebody say Guerrilla Gravity? Just got my Trail Pistol a few weeks ago, pretty awesome so far. Pike Ultimate, Deluxe Ultimate can, XT8000/E13 mix.
    I'm a GG brand ambassador, if you are considering one of these hit me up for a little incentive.

    Oh and if you haven't heard about the riding in Northwest Arkansas, it's pretty freaking rad here...

    I was intrigued by them at first.. then I looked at the website. I don't get it, for like $20 more you can get a full tailgate pad. I can't see why these justify the price they're charging for them.

    Thanks for the comprehensive post. I finally sliced my shitty OEM Aggressor tire through a rock garden yesterday so I'm on the hunt. My typical combo is DHF/HRII with downhill casings (I'm really hard on shit and don't care about rolling resistance). Do you recommend Cushcore definitively ? I'll likely only run it in the rear

    We can discuss more on Sunday

    Interesting, I’ve seen some people mention guerrilla gravity but never did research. Just saw those prices and they really aren’t bad. Especially since you can buy the seat stay to change the bike up and they have a carbon front triangle. Very intersting
