    Tire ? Panaracer Cedric Gracia 29x2.25

    Anyone ever try to this new tire? Great deal on price point right now, although I am guessing that it would wear fast in AZ. Any experience?

    I ran the 26" version and it was a great tire. It did wear out but no faster than similar tires. Grip was very nice and it held up to some serious abuse.

    I liked the grip on the but end of my 29er for Patagonia (AZT) and Huachuca Mtn rides. Grip was lasting better than the Geax Saguaros it replaced. I pitched the tire before the grip wore out largely due to a sidewall hole that I could never resolve. It was probably a manufacturers defect as it occurred at the edge of the hotpatch and there was no sign of abrasion. That being said it wasn't a good enough to replace a year+ ago.
    At the $34 PP has it listed at I'd give it another go if I needed the rubber.
    Cheers,
