Hey - if Rob says they're superb then they're superb. He knows his rubber :D :D :D

Did other manufacturers do this? I think Specialized had some, although not different names for front rear? I have a pair of Spesh Mt Baldys :D

Who made the tyres for Kona?

Was it Chen Shin like the rest of them?
Rest of them being ritchey, Spesh, onza ..
Cheng Shin then know as CST, now better known as Maxxis..or did they stay with National/Panatacer like they did with the early propulsion/equilibrium. Combo?
