    Anyone try a Mission 2.3 on a converted Rush?

    I'm looking for a faster rolling tire than a Nevegal for my 650b'd Cannondale Rush. I'm willing to give up a little grip for some more speed. I was looking at the new Kenda Honey Badger 2.2, but from what I've been told, it won't be available for another 2 months. I know the Vee rubber Mission 2.1 would fit on the rear, but from what I've read it seems kinda skinny. Has anyone tried the 2.3 version on the rear of a Rush?

    Went ahead and purchased a Mission 2.3, knowing it would fit fine on the front. It turns out it also fits fine on the rear. With smaller knobs and a more rounded profile, it actually provides MORE clearance on the rear of a Rush.

    Cool. I appreciate letting us know as I'll need some new rubber for my converted Rush here in a few months. Let us know how they perform after you get some time on them. Thanks!
