Experience brings out the best of us . We hit the trails just about every day and try all kinds of bikes, parts, wheels, pieces. The past month the WTB Bronson 2.2 tires tubeless have been glued to the trails even in wet conditions. The side bite does not let you slip away in a turn without losing any speed. Climbing over roots, rocks, the tires are tacky and grip very well. We highly recommend the WTB Bronson tires for North Georgia.
Listen close and We HOPE you understand. Hope hydraulic brakes are unbelievable. We have used all models. The reliability is by far the best I have ever witness. Hope products are made in Barnoldswick England. Hope makes headsets, lights, hubs, stems, pedals, brake pads. Hopefully cranks in the future. The cross country brakes We use are the Tech 2’s with the floating rotors and braided hose. The organic brakes pads keeps everything quiet so you can sneak up on your competition . Absolutely no plastic parts on the Hope brakes. Terry tried her Santa Cruz Tallboy today and was amazed on how the Hope brakes performed on a 28 mile up and down ride. Terry comments on the Hope. Life is so much easier using these brakes. These guys are not paying me to write about any one product. We are just sharing our experience tried and true. My first mountain bike was purchased in 1979 and hangs in the our barn. A Ritchey Timberwolf with road bike parts at the time you could purchase BMX wheels or road touring parts and brakes to construct or build a MTB. Loving dual suspension for comfort and hydraulic brakes is like riding in a Cadillac.
