I’ve been riding plus tires all season on a Specialized Fuse and Stumpjumper 6Fattie. Both bikes came with 27.5×3” Purgatory front and Ground Control rear tires, all in the lightweight Control casing. Both bikes are super capable and fun to ride.
Last weekend I rode the new Specialized Purgatory 27.5×3 GRID tires on both ends of my Stumpy. WHOA.
This bike’s first ride turned into a mess of crusty/melty snow and slick mud. Not impressive.
Friday night’s adventure? Rad!

Bonus: 6Fattie wheels on my S-Works Enduro 29!

I have a Specialized FatBoy for a week. Saturday morning we did backyard funny business. Later that afternoon, I rode dirt roads and singletrack from the house.

Yesterday I rode my rigid S-Works Stumpjumper on Picture Rock Trail in Lyons, CO.
It felt just like riding my 1988 Diamondback Apex—except …
I have a half dozen rides on the 2015 Fox 36 RC2.
My shoulders are a good test of bump absorption, and they like this fork.
Many of you are running Specialized Butcher tires on the fronts of your all-mountain/enduro bikes.
The Butcher is a versatile and dependable choice. But what do you run in back, especially if you want faster rolling?
