In the cleavage of the Tetons
I know all Monkeys shred on DH casing Assegais, but I’m trying to lighten up my wife’s bike for the very Un-technical town trails.
Anyone have anything like this or similar sitting in the spider/mosquito pile?
TIA

I can look, but I think I may have ditched any remaining 27.5's. Just our mullet DH bike's have midsize now and they're not running Ardent's :p

I don't. But I used to. A decade ago Jenson had a sale of Ardents, they were like $15 a tire.

I got a box full for the trail bike and a box full for the DH bike.

Yeah, this guy ran Ardents on a downhill bike. Though in fairness, they did come in 3C DH casing back then. :busted:

An owner of a local bike shop once told me how much he loved Ardents, that was the last time I took any suggestions from him seriously.
Fair enough if you are a super light weight human, but I am not, and neither was he.
Minion SS FTW.
