    I have some all mountain style frame tape. It's held up good for the past year and you can order it with a pattern on it and it changes the look of your bike a bit. For the wheels, did you try working both beads to the center of the rim then I would just grab the tire and try to roll it off the rim. Just using pressure on the ground and your hands vertically. Maybe get a sponge and get that edge of the rim a little wet/soapy to help the tire slide off

    Yeah, I was trying to get it in the dip in the center but when I found the profile of the wheel there's not much dip, 4-5mm max and the tube takes up some space. Gonna give it another shot maybe tonight. Think these maxxis tires fit tight.

    May buy some generic tape and cut my own panels from it. Not a ton of choices out there for matte paint.

    I will say this bike is beating the hell out of me. Been off the bike for too long (5wks) and my fitness level has gone down noticeably. That seat is killing me too... Some serious tenderizing to the wrong parts.. Gonna try one of the other seats I have around here when I change out the dropper post.

    Sweet. I just sold a stump jumper pro frame that I had for the wife. Decided I didn’t want her coming with the daughter and I.

    I have a new Nomad frame that I need to build but have been dragging my feet on spending the cash.

    Thanks, I told myself I wasn't going to buy a dirt bike up here so I bought a mountain bike that cost just as much haha. Lots of good trials around and only $200 for a season pass to the local resort. Hopefully I dont get attacked by too many bears and moose

    Really enjoyed MTB up in Alaska. Except for the mosquitoes...

    Ugh don't remind me. I haven't lived anywhere with bugs for a long time.
