nice combo. curious on your thoughts of the mountain king after you've ridden it awhile.

the crossmark/ardent combo was bad once they started getting old. i was not a big fan of the ardent up front. not very confidence inspiring.

the nobby nics are tubeless/snakeskin/buzz word/buzz word magic. went on super easy with no leaks at all. they've been on 6 months and i think i've only put air in them 2 or 3 times. the outside knobs look like they face the wrong direction but man, they hold a corner and when they start to slide, they are pretty quick to grab back again. i don't think i'll ever run a different tire on the SS or the SB-66 once i get it built.

the 303 i got has a muddy mary up front and a wicked will in the back. really curious to see how those perform.
