I mounted the tires to my geared big tire BMX bike that I ride wooded trails on.
I finally took the bike and tires out for their maiden trail ride. The trail was extremely muddy and covered by leaves, far from my ideal conditions which made me cautious when leaning the bike over into turns. But to my surprise the tires offered impressive traction when accelerating, braking and turning. I can't wait to see what these tires are capable of next spring and summer when the trails are dry, uncovered and fast.
Mounting of the tires was super easy too, no issues with the bead being too tight or too loose.
This was an easy install as a tubeless tire. I've only ridden it a couple of times and it's a significant improvement on the dusty summer trails in Hood River. I ended up replacing both tires because they are working for me that well.
I am new to fatbiking and I quickly learned that studs are necessary to ride during the winter in my area. Before having studs, I fell constantly. My tires would lose grip and slide like crazy on all the patches of ice. Getting the Dillinger 5s was a big improvement. The bike was able to stay upright better on the patches of ice and there was not any noticible difference in speed or performance. HOWEVER, I have still managed to make these tires slide out when I ride quickly into corners or other aggressive maneuvers. I have just learned that I cannot ride as aggressively as I typically do in the summer on my full-suspension mountain bike. I would still recommend the Dillinger 5s as they seem to be some of the best snowice tires available. But do not expect to gain unlimited grip.
