Thought I'd try and inflate the tire yesterday. It inflated no probs, still had the same shape, held psi over night, looked fine.
Got asked on a ride late last night, decided to put the wheels on the 250F. Went to my favourite riding spot. 5 minutes in, dead flat, 3 hours later, a beat to hell rider lol.
That's 7 hours in 3 days on a dead flat rear tyre, fun fun.

I'm over Tu-bliss, I'm going back to HD tubes and S-12's. I'll leave the Tu-bliss on the 144.

I'll post a vid later, won't be anything special though. I just want you to see how bad the tyre was and how it held up in the rough stuff. One side of the tyre was completely folded under the rim, same as Saturday. It's pretty Impressive that it stayed on and got me through the day on both rides.
I've ridden with zero psi a lot with other tyres, but thry don't fold under the rim like the Starcross 5's. I think they'd be a lot better tyre with tubes.
I had to slow down for tree roots and log hops. Left hand turns I had the rear trying to pass the front, right hand corners you could hold it on, as long as there were no tree roots.

Video.

One of the smoother tracks. I didn't want to look like a complete Gumby.
