That's a 19" front in FuSoYa's pic. Jim, that's what it looks like to me, too before FuSoYa's pic.

Tubeless is more better for me.

Here's Continental's Trail Attack site.

Will someone please explain to me why this is not better (in every way) than the outgoing 990? I see a lot of hate in this thread and I don't get it. All I see is improvement.

How about 503 lbs to start?

Improvement if you want a street bike.
A big step int he wrong direction if you want a big touring offroad bike.
