    doooo it..
    Id have a very tough time going from xtr to xt ( I think theres a small jump in quality and price from slx to xt but a huge jump from xt to xtr but that's my opinion).. but I get it that stuff isn't cheap!

    Thanks! Depends a lot on how much psi you are running.. higher psi youll be bouncing like a ball lol. Its a blast to ride especially in the snow

    Do the bigger tires add pedaling resistance? Ive seen more and more of these fat stress tires around

    Oh yes for sure! Whether you can notice it depends on the terrain in my opinion. On pavement- yup lol. On single track.. maybe- I find myself going faster in the corners, sandy area and even up and down hill because you don't have to pick a line.. lol you just roll over everything! Probably wouldn't take it on downhill sections though...

    My race was today (Expert 50+ old Fok). Final results not posted yet but looks like I also took 7th. Now the waiting game to see if my Grom beat my segment times... :rotfl:

    My kid and I both took 7th for the event. For the series she finished 5th in Pro (in the $$$) and I finished 4th Expert 50+. And she did not beat any of my segments but that day will come....

    Also our team took 1st in the team comp for the 3rd year in a row.

    Some pictures are surfacing, here is one of the old fat guy -
