    I’m certain you’re all right but really I just went too low on the psi. Not spending another dime on this bike. Gotta save my cheddar for a full suspension 29er trail bike this Spring. :D

    Stuck a new valve in the rim and the tire inflated right up with a simple compressor. No drama and no fuss this time. I'm back on the tubeless wagon!

    I’m really digging the simplicity and efficiency of this bike. I’m also getting quite the workout, and not just because of the extra heft. I find myself standing a whole lot more to get through the rock gardens and up steep climbs. The massive tires roll over everything and I don’t get wheel spin, even on the slickest climbs. My glutes and hammies have been sore all month! It’s pretty cool having these new bike experiences, all over again.:D

    Tubeless is working great. I’ve settled on 7.5F and 8R for now. Also swapped the OEM alloy bars and seatpost for carbon ones I took off my other bike. I'm hoping this dampens some of the bumps and takes pressure off my wrists.

    Yesterday at Ringwood. I hear snow’s in the forecast... ;)
