    Well, I respect the effort to recreate the classic Magic experience, but I won't be really impressed until they get some branches up there that you need to knock away from your face as you pass.

    Well... that's an update which I'm happy to miss for a substantial discount.

    My bike is arriving today. I'm excited!

    I read a lot of good things about the Aggressor for a desert rear tire, but I don't think it comes in an EXO+ sidewall. I've been fairly lucky (at least given where I ride), so I was hoping to avoid...

    That's basically what I've always done when I've gotten a bike. I've just never run Assegais and have read how slow rolling they are, so I was considering just saving the rear for when I need a new...
