Kenda Big Blocks

Who's tried 'em? What is the general consensus?

I know they're a fairly new tire... they look like they might be a good mix of on-off road..

I'm curious too. Looking for something to get me down the Continental Divide Trail in 2012.

A co-worker of mine installed a set a while back. He says they stick pretty well, but I can almost see them wearing away.. I doubt if he'll get 3K out of the rear..

Consider Michelin T63's instead.. A touch over $100 for a pair, aggressive, longer lasting, and WAY cheaper than the Big Blocks..

Check out the reviews of both..
