    300lb man looking for 29er tires

    [SIZE=3][/SIZE][SIZE=3]I am a 300lb man riding a stache 7. I generally ride hardpack but once to twice a month I hit single track with every type of obstacleimaginable. I am looking for a strong tubeless tire that will last and has thecapabilities to ride fast. Does anyone have any inputs? Oh ya I do ride hard attimes hitting somewhat big jumps, lucky me the frame is solid.[/SIZE]

    I have been on a Stache 8 for the past year and have been extremely impressed with the Bontrager 29-3 tires. I have been running the 'Team' version tubeless rather than the 'Expert' version that is normally stock on the Stache bikes. They will likely stand up to anything those stock wheels are capable of surviving IMHO.
