    How does the Ardent width/volume compare to a Neo 2.3?

    Thanks for the info! Ordered an Ardent for the rear as I keep tearing the side wall of my Neo-Motos

    actual width?

    how does the crossmark measure up? I'm curious how wide it really is versus the 2.10 advertised width.

    Arizona rocks must be more jagged than New England rock which generally is more roundy but unrelenting. Here I've had no issues with my Neo Moto 2.3's.

    Ardents are also a popular choice here for 26 and 29 so I'm also curious about the true size of the 650 flavor.

    I just mounted mine this morning. It is small. I would say its close to 51-53mm range (after 18hrs of stretch at 50psi). That puts it close to its 2.1 sizing.
