    Need advice on a rear racing tire (tubed).

    Hi guys.

    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.

    are you a bike shop owner? or a custom builder? I want to talk to you about your website
