  • Nics are just that.A good all rounder.
    You`ll need to sacrifice some of that speed for the extra grip.
    What bike,what size tyre and waht tyre pressures are you running?

    I have a genius 40 and i'm running maxxis high roller 2.1's right now. They're excellent through corners but don't shed the mud too well on the side tread and they're not amazing on the muddier climbs, although the scott "traction control" system does help with that.

    "Tiers" in the telecom world tends to have multiple definitions, depending on who you ask. What tier a carrier is, is loosely defined at best and everyone has their own opinion of what tier a carrier might be. Here is my opinion:


    Tier 1: [may be considered an RBOC]

    Qwest
    AT&T (formerly SBC, Bell South, Southwestern Bell, Ameritech)
    Savvis
    Verizon (formerly MCI and UUNET)
    Global Crossing
    Level 3 (recently merged with Broadwing)
    NTT Communications



    Tier 2: [may be considered a CLEC; has their own network, but also resells tier 1]

    XO Communications
    Covad
    Paetec/US LEC
    Time Warner Telecom (recently merged with Xpedius)
    Eschelon Telecom Inc
    Cogent Communications
    Speakeasy
    Embarq
    McLeodUSA
    AOL Transit Data Network
    Covista
    IDT Corp.



    Tier 3: [wholesalers /resellers of tier 1 and 2 networks]

    Trinsic
    Excel
    Primus Telecom
    PowerNet Global
    Access One Inc.
    Splice Communications
    Acceris

    sounds like he knows what he's talking about

    I thought that he was planning a bike related wedding and wanted to know how many tiers to have on the cake! :wink:

    But I suppose that he could be American, tried to type 'tires' and found out that his co-ordination is as bad as mine.

    If you didn't learn anything today, you weren't paying attention!

    Before you buy new tyres buy yourself a tyre pressure guage! :wink:
    You`d be surprised at the difference having the correct pressure makes.
    I`d start with them at 35psi,and then experiment by adding or droppoing the pressure 5psi either way.
