Yes.. currently a Mefo rear and TKC front. It is the combo I tend to run most just because the Mefo lasts a while (although today I couldn't get the thing to hook up.. a few times on steep downhills in small loose rocks the rear end tried to pass the front end... then I remembered I had 38lbs in it )

I think I'm going to try a Mefo/T63 combo next...

I assume that Caribou, the ghost town, is sort of near Caribou Ranch open space and in the area of the old, world-famous Caribou Ranch recording studio?
Yes, above it.

I might play motohooky again on Friday.

My first set of each, same configuration. Both seem to be holding up very well after a couple of thousand miles.

BTW, I got to hang out and ride with a friend of yours recently.

Thanks.

The 908s last quite a while - around 8000km or so . I only run the 606 front at the beginning and end of the season while the ground is soft. Once everything dries out, I'll go back to the Kenda K270.

I've got about 800 Kms (not
Miles!!)on my 908 and it's half gone already. Just ordered a mefo hoping it will live a little longer!

Have I mentioned how much I love living in Colorado? [/QUOTE]

Hey Geek. Where in Colorado are you? I'm just north in Calgary AB. Be nice to head down to your stomping grounds sometime and get a tour...?

I'm in the Front Range in north Boulder County.. about an hour from downtown Denver.

Denver is very similar to Calgary in it's relationship to the Rockies.

Let me know if you are coming.. my schedule tends to be pretty hectic but I take full advantage of time when it becomes available and would be happy to go on a tour if the timing works.

Great! That would be awesome. I'll be sure to give LOTS of notice and work around any schedule you have. Thanks! Lemme know if you ever come to the Canadian Rockies, be happy to do the same.

I'll be rolling up that way (hopefully after CJ's Tech Weekend) on the way to do the Dalton Highway. Maybe the first week of August? Haven't firmed up our travel dates yet.

The 908s work better on a narrower rim (I have a 2.5" on mine). Personally, I did not like the way it handled stretched flat across the wide stock rim. The Mefos do last a little longer (burned through three of them now) but don't hook up as well off road, I find.
