    I've always kinda passed up on the dirt demo bec outdoor in Vegas is always like basking in the furnace.

    My question is, can you bring personal bikes in the dirt demo expo? I can't remember..

    Stop by at the Hutchinson dirt demo booth and say hello.

    06 Stuff..
    Nice to see some testing input get implemented on the real thing...when Octopus slept with Bulldog, you get a Barracuda (Piranha is the semi-slick version).

    How are the sidewalls? I loved the Octo's but the thin sidewalls finally got to me. Way to many pinch flats.

    Thin? On the 2.5 tubeless? I haven't had issues and I have ran mine (several on several bikes) without any sidewall issues. Pinch flats? -run higher pressure or go tubeless. :p

    I'm glad Hutchie is retaining the Octo sideknobs for 2006. Those lugs are tough and grippy.

    2.3"s Tubeless. I am guessing the 2.5" have a different sidewall?
