Man oh man. Do you have a death wish?? :cowfrown:So I guess getting you to drop trou and squeal like pig is out of the question?
Here is a shot of the Cowboy we met after we strapped him back up onto the trail - nice guy - :bigthumb:
I remember reading that paper a while back before I bought my current tires. What stood out for me was that it was written down in a coherent form, available for review and constructive criticism. It is not a magazine article catering to advertisers and it is not simple opinion piece ("Dang it!! I run Wang-Chun Chinese Mud Terrains knockoffs and they are the best!!!"). Not a perfect white paper, but still rare that someone made the effort to generate one.Though the article stresses the virtues of a narrow tire, the comments on point for sand are expressed here:
I found it very interesting that there was no mention of TIRE COMPOSITION and the materials used in the tread. Different tire material makes a BIG difference in the adhesion of the tire to surfaces as does specific tread pattern. To me these are variables that were not adequately discussed in this white paper. All that is covered in detail is wide vs narrow tires and while that's good, to be useful, more emphasis should be given to those other variables to aid in tire size and brand selection.

Heck no! You are spot on with your comments and I agree with them too.I hope that my comment wasn't out of line. I think the paper was excellent, well referenced, etc. It would have been nice to have had just a wee bit more.
