I switch back and forth from a Alex DX32 rim and the KH rim. Ive been
on the Dx32 for a way longer time than on the KH rim.

see?
if you don't know FOR SURE don't go defending or not defending a
certain object. if you don't know. don't post. know something before
you post it.

i don't mean to start another argument but please keep this in mind.:)

I have a pretty high demand in my tire. Grippy, cant fold or pinch
easily, can run well in below freezing weather, and that can last me
for a long time. SO far, the CC has met my needs just fine.

Thats nice, and Ive known about the EC tire for a while now. I can also
name a lot of riders who love the CC.

I didnt say this doesnt happen, and its happened to me when I first
started to ride on a CC tire, but it went away.

Geeze, your replies back are pretty off from what ive typed. Ive
already heard their and everybody else's experience, thats why I like
to say about my experiences too. Some times it agree with people, other
times its different.

Im picky about my tires too, if I am riding something that I feel is
holding me back, im not gonna keep riding it, ill look for something
better, for me though, and a lot of others, the CC works. And are you
implying that I am not trying to push myself to ride the best I can or
that I am a newish rider? I sure hope not.

Good quote. =p

Im not offended at all. Im not doubting his intelligence about the
subject either. Im just riding a different tire. Im liking the
different tire, and I stated that.

Quote:
> so i trust his opinions more than most other ppls on this forum.

Thats good, I usually do too. To be honest though, sometimes I just
really couldnt care what Joe Hodges likes and what dozens of trials
bikers like. I need to ride my own stuff and be able to get a feel for
it so I can make a choice on how it feels for me when I am riding on
it.

Thats true, and I have had a chance to ride a few different tires for a
while. Not all of them. I ordered the Try-all and its coming soon. Ill
be doing plenty of snowy street, muni and trials with it before I start
comparing it to my Luna and CC.

This is true too. But honestly, I think I am good enough to judge a
good or bad tire. Gaping skinny to skinny to skinny ect, big ups and
down. (ups are finally getting better around 35" now. Was stuck at 32"
for such a long time) nice sized gaps and good control with natural
lines and riding skinnies.  

Quote:

Nah, because I dont want it to become something like a Mac vs PC type
of thing. CC vs try-all. Its not worth it. Some tires have better
properties than other tires, and a lot of you will like this tire,
another lot of you will like another tire, and thats it for me. Its
kinda like how people like the Nimbus II frame better than a KH frame.

Long post. :p

Quote:
> DUDE, NICE UNI! I luv the white blueberry. its a sick setup

So trrue! Oh, with two r's lol. I especially like the white spokes. Can
you get 540s yet? I know you where doing 360s on your 26", so those
probably feel like butter on the smaller wheel.
