    Thanks there Dave sounds encouraging for sure.

    Colin got back to me and the E10's are a wee bit less aggressive than the E09's and he said they would wear better. He suggested I get a pair of E07's Dakar (longer wear) and he's had some buddies that have done the Dempster on them and they have performed well.

    But I found out that on Dec 21/12 Mitas had a recal on the E07's which included Canada, so I've sent a not to Colin to find out if any of his stock was affected.

    Hey folks I received a reply from MX1 on the recall as it pertains to the supply they are selling and I've posted Heather's reply below:

    Sounds like they are taking care of their customers interests.

    I'll be ordering a set for my Wee when the new stock comes in.

    Hi Ron, sorry for the late reply,
    We do have a outlet warehouse in Richmond BC. We stock the tires here and distribute from this location. We have a small display in the front of our warehouse for customers that like to pick up orders or view products before purchasing.
    You can get location information and product info at our site mx1canada.com
    Cheers

    Hi, Yes all the EF-07 are DOT approved, this is a FIM tire used for on and off road competitions around the world. Tire appears to have lower knob height than most off road knobby tires, and therefore not so squirmy at higher hwy speed. I have had one on the back of my EXC530 and did over 3000km of pavement riding and can't believe how little ware there is to the tire. It uses Kevlar fibers mixed in the rubber compound and makes for a very long lasting tire. It's not as sticky as some of the C-18 and C-20 Mitas tires however ware factor is very good for a knobby DOT tire.
