This will work for a road tire but when you need something for cross/mtb I wouldn't recommend tape. The higher volume of a road tire will help old the tire in place whereas in the dirt you tend to want to run low pressure which is harder on the mastic.
Use what the Pro's use. The Vittoria Mastic is the only glue to use for cross. It's fairly easy to use and is very hard to roll a tire if glued correctly. Two applications on the rim then two on the tire.
For trail riding this fork is a great product. As a 100mm race fork the CTD is pointless. When I'm racing I don't want to take my hands off the bar to change the fork mode. I will say that fox upgraded my damper for free to a terralogic and it is much better for a racer. Fox does a few other things a little funny when it comes to 100mm "race" forks. They don't tune the forks to firm as I'd expect. Rather they tune it to "M". I think the CTD would be best for forks from 120mm and above.
Zipp moved the threads from the face plate to the stem this year. This simple change made this stem 1000x better. Last years stem was so hard to torch down you would most likely strip the bolts. Zipp makes a great product and obviously they've learned something and made steps to correct flaws.
This tool can do it all. It is compact and very well built. However a little on the large side they payoff is knowing if I carry this tool I can fix just about everything on any bike. In some cases this is my go to tool for bike maintenance.
This in theory is a great bag. Although very small my main problem is the attachment ingagement. Somewhere along a 3hr ride it flew off. Never to be seen again. I appreciate the design but it needs a few more revisions before I'd buy this again.
