    Anybody got any experience with the try-all stock rear? I've heard real good things about the mod version, but nobody I know has any advice about the stock version. Anybody? And also,I know about mich. and maxxis. I'm just curious about these -

    I wouldn't do anything with the rear, just based on the mod tires...they are INSANELY grippy but the sidewall leaves much to be desired compared to a michelin dh comp 24 or a maxxis st minion for example.....


    I will let you know how they feel on the front end though whenever they get in my hands :)

    I ordered a front and rear from Webcyclery, Ill tell you how they ride when they come in. (Im sure Ill love them compared to what I have now though...)

    They sell out fast though, they had to reorder some when I made my order. Some should be in by the end of this week.

    I'm trying to get my hands on one right now but I'll have to agree with andrew, unless your a smooth stock rider, a thicker sidewall on the rear would be outweigh their insane grip. But who's to say they have a thin sidewall, I haven't seen them yet.

    Hey Sonic......where's da love man?

    Sonic I'm sorry but you are a dumb ass. I don't understand why people like to waste money, I guess you didn't want to believe me when I told him to get a real rear tire....makes no fucking sense.

    :rofl :
    Wow.
    appears that this place is a haven of over-inflated egos as opposed to opinions, the latter being what matters to any thinking individual.

    Otherwise, someone should actually ride the damn tires and let us know what their about! None of this heresay. If someone has actually tried the damn thing I'm sure there's thousands of riders wanting to damn well know!

    Come on, someone be the guinea pig. You know you wanna. Think of the fame of the "the first..."

    P.S. anyone else chuckle when they click the submit button?

    Ive tried the tyre out on Hamish O'Neill's bike and they felt awesome especially with the tryall rims. I rode it for about an hour all up over a few days.

    I didnt have much of an opportunity to ride it in natty but i rode it for a bit, and apart from the insane grippyness they felt really bouncy and squishy and cool. :Wavey:

    I want one for the front, yes i do :drool:

    Andy, I cant believe you even bothered with that post. I guess you really wanted to just have that out there. You already know I spent hundreds elsewhere and on other parts just because you recommended it, I cant believe you get all unwound when I throw $38 towards a different tire. Much respect to your riding and knowledge already given, what else do you want, cut my hair like yours? :D

    I have the money saved up for that and can afford another tire if I just hate it, and if I do, I can use it on another bike until it wears away(which happens pretty quickly from what Im told).

    Throwing away money...this from the guy grinding down Race Face cranks to use on non drive side...talk to you later. :eek3:

    pete, that's half the reason Im getting them, to ride them, let others around me with more experience ride them, and just get a general opinion.

    haha, sorry Graham, you told me youd let me know how they run when you got one in and I never heard anything. I was on the phone with Kevin adding something to my order and he told me he had some TryAll stock tires on order coming in, so I said why not when I heard that.

    Sonic, I will ON THE FUCKING SPOT bet you $1,000 of hard fucking cash that the try-all tires have worse sidewalls than the michelin or maxxis favorites.

    And pete, go do a search on tire recommendations on any trials site worth a shit. Opinion? NO, fact.

    if the sidewalls aren't up to snuff the only place i can see them coming in handy is on wet mossy rocks... which is probably good considering how fast they will probably wear.

    We won't know till we ride one. I hope the sidewall is nice, but i really don't haev a problem with the michelins i have.

    does anyone remember when i came back from worlds and said something like "those try-all tires are sticky but the sidewalls were weak sauce compared to the maxxis tires"....? marco hosel was practically ready to give me his back-up bike for my mod tires because he didnt want to ride the prototype try-all tires.

    i guess we will see when the production treads show up and someone tests them.

    Kevin, I'm not sure if you're talking about the Mod tires or the Stock tires, but incase you're refering to the mod tires:
    I watched Mike improve SO much with the try-all mod tires, I thought he'd been riding for 5 months extra and hadn't told me. They are 10 fold better than any other mod tire in production right now. Importantly, he hasn't had any trouble with his sidewalls, he is running exactly half the pressure in his try-alls that he ran in the monty, and they haven't folded or pinched in a month of riding, compared to his Montys which folded ever other time he pedal kicked. Who knows about the stock, but the mod tires are SICK (SICK I say...)

    sure the mod tires are nice. look what you have to compare them to.. monty- shit. echo- bigger shit. even a square kick in the prostate would be better than those two choices. by the way- gilles said the maxxis mod tires rolled the try-all ones under the carpet.

    i mean stock- since this is about the "try-all stock tires". im sure they will be super gooey rubber but how are the sidewalls... compared to my michelin/maxxis tires i bet they arent as nice. considering how sticky the big M's are i wouldnt be willing to sacrifice sideall performance for a few notches lower in durrometer.

    im sure the try-all tires are way nicer than what most people seem to run but are they better than one of the M's... questionable.

    So your point Kevin, is that you need to CNP every bit of demand for the Maxxis mod tires, and E-mail it to your sponsor so we can get great tires for those silly circus bikes.
