  • Last weekend I fit up a Shinko 216mx Fatty that I bought to try out about a month ago. It was by far the easiest tyre I have ever fit to the tubliss equiped front wheel. It basically fell on!
    Took it for a ride at the local in extremely wet and sloppy conditions. I was a little skeptical of all the claims about these tyres and to be honest have never really loved any front tyres.
    This tyre is the only one I will be fitting from now on as long as it doesn't do anything silly like throwing knobs/splitting etc. It is absolutely amazing!! It feels like I have an extra 6 inches of suspension travel up front, trail trash and rubble is no longer felt, hands don't get sore hitting sharp square edges. It climbs out of greasy clay ruts with ease but holds a line perfectly even in loose sand.
    The only downsides are a slightly heavier steering input and it clips the bash plate on heavy landings, but to be fair I need to up the spring rates front and rear so they may well be fixed this week when they show up.
    Got some 0.46's on the way from Jan at Shock treatment and had a 5.8 rear spring left over from the TM. It is a tad heavier than the recommended 5.66 but it should be fine. Going to service the shock and forks while I am in there and may even check out the valving for the other KYB equipped bike riders that want some Gasgas magic in their forks!
    Damn I love this bike!!! ^roost

          There my go-to for anything GasGas! Fast service, very reasonable prices as well as postage and if it's not in stock it will say not in stock on their web site, no awkward emails saying "sorry the item you ordered is actually out of stock and there's a 3 month backorder wait!"

          Ordering from these guys is how it should be... Easy!

                  They were the good old days. I need an hour meter on the fishing reel. That would tell you were my time has been going.

                  Poor bike is due for another couple laps of the yard to push some fuel through the carb. ^roost
