But disappointed in the Goodyears on the Trance, wanted to love them.
There seemed to be a lot of that going on with them.
Amusing story relating to Maxxis wobbles. I had an EXO+ Assegai that was tight to install (on a DT 481 IIRC) and I caved and levered it on and warped it in the process. Tried it on another rim (carbon Nextie), this time installed by hand with extra lube on the bead and rim lip, and it pulled up with the exact same warp in it.
mentioned he wanted to try an Assegai to possibly replace his Michelin Enduro Front as they were vapourware at the time. I said something along the lines of "Here, have this - it's warped but might be alright to get an impression of the tyre". He fits it up, and we go ride together. We get to the end of the first trail and he's looking at me like "the fuck is wrong with this idiot?". This does not narrow down options with me - so I ask him why he's looking at me puzzled and he explains; the tyre has no warp. I'm puzzled. He lifts the bars up and spins the front wheel. Yep, no warp.
To this day I still do not understand.
TL;DR - send your warped Maxxis tyres to @Jpez
so they can live a happy second life!
