    Tire recommendation

    What type of tire would you recommend that is easy to install/remove? I am not running tubeless. Just purchased a Maxis Aggressor tubeless ready/folding and the tire was near impossible to mount onto my rim. If you’re running tubes, are wired tires easier to remove/mount than folding tires?

    Brake Rub

    Stem length/preference

    Was to curious to know what is the preference of stem length for some riders? I've been riding with a 100mm stem for a while, but was thinking the length may be a bit longer than I need. I also noticed I get some minor back pain after 2+ hour rides. I was thinking this may be caused from leaning...

    Vibrating front wheel

    Been having trouble with my front wheel vibrating and shaking alot when braking at fast speeds. Wondering where the problem could be coming from? The rotor is not bent and the rim seems to be straight (tru'd it as best as I could). Anything else that would cause such noticable vibrations? Wheel...

    New to site

    Long time observer of the site and finally took the initiative to sign up. I live in Staten Island and have been riding for a few years. Trails are fairly mediocre by me. Nothing exciting but its where I first started ridding and discovered the love of mountain biking. My favorite trails to...
