Very nice!   What tires are you running (and like)?

For the rear I am currently using an ed 78 I think...Bridgestone, and more for warmer drier climate I guess. I like the Metz mx5 for loamy or sandy soil. I often use desert tires for 2 reasons...west oz is hot and dry most of the time. She's a big girl that eats rear tires! I also have a maxis desert, a mich mx5' and a couple of others in the pile to try.motoz etc....

Up front I currently have a Pirelli mx did hard. But I think I prefer the Bridgestone battle cross.

Like most things, tires are a bit of a compromise...I only want a tire that is good in the wet, in the dry, on rocks, gravel, tar, mud, never gets a flat and lasts 100k miles. Not to much to ask is it! ;D

this is what I get to ride across a lot of the time...plus a heap of rocks jutting out of it. One of the reason I run desert type rubber.

Ever thought of trying a "tractionator"?  I have read some good reviews from the desert and rock guys. say it sucks in mud and wet.

I run the tractionator I/T.  It does pretty good, but we have mostly sugarsand.  I've never ran over a foot with it so I don't know how it would do there..?  But I've heard good things about the desert tractionator too.
