Only after he went to Sunn.....

On his GT's he ran Michelin transalps/ hot depending on conditions....

I'm toying with building a Nico Spec LTS but its a funny mix of M900 (rear brake / lever and shifter, cranks + rear mech and chain) M910 hubs /M950 front brake lever M737 front v brake....

The joys

Please avoid the Tioga DH if you're going to do proper DH riding - I bought a pair, used them in practice at a race - had the sketchiest run ever, took them off binned them and bought Maxxis high rollers... Way better in all conditions....

I'm not sure about Nico, as suggested I thought he was on transalps. BUT all the Aussie team were tied into Hutchinson so I wouldn't be surprised if you saw Rob Wood, Mike Ronning, Scott Sharples etc on them.

I have a French mag from bits and they review his LTS - hence I know he used Michelin... All the is guys were too - they used the "system" tyres £1000euro for 2 on the later lobo and I drives ( think later peaty era...)
