    Need tires for my nickel build.....new ardent??? crossmark?? wolverine??

    I hated the old ardent 29er tire (2.25) on the front, but the 650b is supposdly the newer tire with the better transiton knobs. Thinking running that on the front and a crossmark on the rear. or even crossmarks front and back.

    whats the word on wolverines??? never ran a wtb tire.

    Schwable and pacentis are out cause im not paying 70.00 for a tire.


    trails here are west style dry dusty with rocks that gets powdery


    thanks

    The wolverines are quite tall from what I have heard. Neo Moto 2.1 or Nevegal 2.1 will get you solid traction and fairly smooth rolling yet they will not make you shim the shock (my experience). There is plenty of space for 650b tires between the stays but it is the seat tube clearance when shock fully compressed that is the limiting factor. Tall tires might lick the seat tube.

    I ran the Wolverines for awhile. Decent intermediate tread tire but were pretty sensitive to air pressure. Just a little too much and they were bouncy. Like StiHacka said they were pretty tall.
