    Here is a few shots that I was able to take of the Endurocross bikes. I came across them testing for the x-games and stopped and talked to them for awhile and got a couple shots of the bikes. Thought everyone might like them as the bikes look awesome. IMG_0204.jpg IMG_0212.jpg IMG_0210.jpg IMG_0209.jpg

    looks like they got the tire goover out & cut slits across the knob to make it flex & grip a little more. Not factory, but custom

    Nope. Done with a hacksaw. Notice the cuts are not wide enough for the blade of a tire groover.

    48mm forks? When did Marzocchi start makin those? I thought it was 45, 50, and now the works 53's were available?

    all the "works" bikes run 48mm Shivers (ZipTY in US and MXGP teams, Gas-Gas and probably others as well.)

    Two best add on for a Husky Ohlins TTX shock and
    48 mm Marzocchi forks
    Ty will be a dealer for the forks soon
    Either Ty or David at Fast Bike Industries in North Carolina can make you a shock, now they are available
    All my Husky now run the Ohlins shock and are waithing for the new 48mm Marzocchi

    Ahhh I see. I'd like to try the works stuff and get a feel for the difference myself. Maybe when I'm rich and famous :lol:

    Good lookin bike though!

    A #1 sipe blade is less than 1mm wide. Takes less than 5 mins to do one tire.

    Takes about an hour, I'd guess, with a hacksaw and same cuts the rubber. Pitty the guy that has to sit there with half a saw blade hacking away for how long?....I'd use a hot-wire before I did that.

    Im sure they used a power tool,, like the die grinder type multi tool with a disc toothed cut off wheel. Anyway I am still surprised that most are using regular MX type tires with knobs cut, while the king of extreme enduro/endurocross (Taddy) uses fatty type FIM rears, FIM enduro rubber with split cut knobs
    ( I am still biased on FIM enduro tires, the 140/80-18 for the E2 E3 size machines), as long as the lower style knobs are fresh)
    As far as the somewhat bizarre pimped out colors go (red engine, white rims, black spoke nipples, chrome brushed tank stickers, etc) Endurocross is an indoor spotlighted circus racing act, more bling= more attention for brand/team/rider recognition. (thats my take on that)

    Taddy's machine ready for action note: rear tire, cut knob FIM enduro 140/80-18, they are like big balloons that's why I like em they are like me......

    Taddy could outride most on a slick....the guys nuts. I LOVE watching him. Got some vid with him wearing out Knighter at the Vegas EX and LMS...Knighter's a class act (now) too.

    No arguments there! Taddy has got to be a robot, no mortal man can ride like that. Man, wouldn't it be great to see him on a Husky???
