    Been concidering going procore @gtluke. My weekend project was reviving an old trick circa 2001 for trials proofing rear tires. Albeit I also ran DH tubes at the time, I had one session on super low psi that stress fractured and nearly taco'd a Mavic 321 (their DH rim of the era) without flatting. Not sure why I abondoned the practice. I haven't weighed before n after yet but the weight penalty seems minimal. The plastidip adds a little bit of coushin but primarily increases the surface area of rim contact. Two 1/2" wide coats o' dip per bead. Clean with alchohol, apply with spoon, shred.

    Swapped out the rubber on the cross bike. Really liked the oem Rocket Rons for the trail, but they are a tad too knobby for the road which always seems to play a part in a ride.

    Went with the new Schwalbe Allaround G-One, new for this year's line. They are tubeless, but set up with tubes for now.

    I was worried about losing the cool factor of the whitewalls, but the stealth black looks pretty tight too.

    They should roll pretty sweet on most of the mixed surface rides.
    And considering how tight a fit it was, I expect no problems once I convert to tubelessness.
    (Read: they were a motherbitch to get on).

    White wall fix coming, kids.

    Swapped all kinds of things, cleaned and lubed many other things, adjusted other different things. Front tire is tubed for now and I miiiight consider a longer stem.

    Bonus, dug out a newish chain that had been too short to fit ANY OTHER PROJECT EVER and viola, it works. Winning!

    I wouldn't mind if it had a little less front weight bias (my old Paradox was the wheelie king) but it's fun and fast and rides pretty ok. Happy so far!

    As brutally stiff as it was, that thing was silly fun. Viva La Paradox!

    Shimano XT brakes on the Pivot.
    Which is now a Full XT group.
    I also believe it is now under 28lbs.
