Need advice on a rear racing tire (tubed).
I have a rigid Trek 29Žer with Bontrager XR1 2.2" on front.
I cant make up my mind what to wear on the back.
I was thinking either Bontrager XR0 2.1" or XR1 2.0".
What I have in my closet is:
Conti X-king 2.2, Race king 2.0 and Panaracer Comet 2.1.
I just find those tires a bit too heavy for racing so I thought it would be a good idea to get a low rolling lightweight tire.
I ride rather smoothly and my weight is 200 lbs.
What do you guys think.

race king rear is a favorite of mine, but it depends on your terrain also.
and no offense, but at 200lbs, I don't think you'll notice much of a difference between that one and a lighter tire, IMO.
