    Hey i read somewhere on this site that echo tires suck. Im in need of 2 rear tires, webcyclery has no mod tires at all, Graham didnt either, so right now im stuck with echo from trialsin. My question is do they suck really bad compared to monty blackwalls? right now im basically riding a slick with holes in it, so pretty much anything can be better, but is echo really all that bad?

    if it is, are there other places in the US that carries mod stuff or am I going to end up ordering from canada? Also i need a set before June 20, so i can ride at Mt Snow.

    thanks..

    They're a godsend to me after having an El Gato. They're still pretty shitty though.

    mod trials market bigger in europe!??!? the maxxis tires wont be for sale here in the states for several more months.

    the echo tires are not as good as the monty ones in my experience... and considering how the monty tires are that is saying nothing good for the echos.

    hey what am i saying- if you want a set of mod tires shoot me a pm. i have a bunch of crap laying around i will never use.

    here is a text wrote by marko...he has maxxis creepy crawler...sorry, but it is in german

    Die Maxxis Creepy Crawler Reifen sind die griffigsten von allen, die ich bisher ausprobiert habe. Die Haftung ist deutlich besser als bei den Montys, die vorher am bike waren. Das Gewicht ist mit 620/1000g im normalen Bereich ähnlich Monty, eher leichter. Die sehr weiche 40a durometer Gummimischung wird auch in Maxxis Downhill-Reifen verwendet. Zu einem Plattfuss kam es bisher nicht.
