9 inch tyres - choices and availaility

Been keeping an eye out for a while for some freeriding 9 inch tyres, to slot nicely in-between the 8 inch (not running great in my local soggy woods) and the 10 inch (bloody heavy but fast) diamond tread fat tyres. Was hoping for a set of Primo Strikers (£39 with tubes) with Primo Composite hubs(£3...

1st board: Comp 16 Pro, £175 off ebay, ridden twice, no scratches on the board and tyres still had the knobbly bits on. Done me well and the tyres, F3s, matrix trucks are still in operation 3 years later, though all three will probably need replacing this year. On the flipside, the deck starting del...

Perhaps someone who was there till the end should do the write-up. I can confirm that the only events from 8am to 9.30 was me taking a dump in the woods and some BG style carving down from the first hill. If necessary, I can supply some awesome photos of several blurry riders, some dirt and an out o...

Also, cudn't really carve properly because the turning is pretty steep (yellow Trampa egg shocks). Will egg shocks become softer after a while? Can i completely remove them for now (don't really want to)? Hey Azik, how much do you weigh? If you are very light then yes, removing the trampa dampas is...

HardTimes I was a little disappointed with. I loved the trailer, watched the whole movie and found that all the best bits were in the trailer. It was available on torrent 6 months ago, if that method is your sort of thing. Bought the DVD off one of the Russian guys at SWMBC couple of years back. He'...

The circle does not have a radius of 14m. You can't add 10 and 4. Agreed. Without doing the maths long hand I'd have thought that the resistance of the 'ringo' through the water would need to be known in order to calculate the drag...but I'm tired and nows not a good time to think much! Now, if any...

In fairness, it's only happened the once since I joined (October?) Can't these just be sorted as and when they happen? If it does intensify then Jaspers suggestion above makes sense but maybe reduced to a couple of posts? Most spammers seem to strike once. Just thinking out loud! :)
