    Trek Superfly 100 Pro with Conti X-King 29x2.2 set up tubeless.

    Mostly riding in Auburn or XC trails in Sacramento.

    Pretty happy with these tires/bikes in Santa Cruz mtn redwood duff and late-summer hardpack:

    Mojo HD (AM bike) - Hans Dampf front, Bronson rear
    On-One Lurcher (XC hardtail) - Racing Ralph 2.4 front (they don't make them in 2.4 anymore ), Maxxis Ikon rear.

    Rear 27.5 wolverine 2.2 / Ardent Tire 27.5x2.25 front . I like to climb on hardpack with
    loose sprinkled in on top . I ride on a paved bike path about 2.5 miles then up steep dirt hills and then go fast down the fire road and some cow trails - straightaways leading into off camber turns . The Ardent sticks like glue and is great on front and is ok for the climb because the front end want to come up when I climb. The Ardent corners great and I can lean the bike with confidence and hold my line on turns .I had a Ardent on the rear but it stuck so good I was a gear or 2 slower so I switched to the wolverine 2.2 and it works great on the hardpack uphills.
    This setup works great for me but the weather is changing and now .
    I need to find some tires that will shed mud so I can keep climbing and long as I can this winter. My plan now is for Ardent front and rear . I also got a new SCHWALBE RACING RALPH 27.5 X 2.25 ready to try out its 585 grams .

    Trek Fuel EX8 and just put on WTB Wolverine 26x2.2 front and rear. Kind of an impulse buy last Friday at Performance Bike as they were on sale for $25 each. Have one good ride on them in rocky (granite) terrain and they were awesome.

    Do you guys think I should swap my 29x2.2 X-Kings for some 29x2.4 Mountain Kings when these wear out?

    I'm a big fan of trails like the Foresthill Divide.

    I am no tire expert, but recently put the mountain king 2.4 tires on one of my xc bikes. I have always been a fan of conti tires (car and bike), and like these a lot so far...in fact, I bought them for my other bike as well.

    Re: What kind of bike/tires are you guys using?

    Currently very happy with 2.35 Hans Dampf front, 2.2 Trail King rear. Riding in Nevada City, Auburn, Downieville, Tahoe.

    I've been less than impressed with Nobby NICs (torn thin sidewalls) and Nevegals (fast wearing, not confident cornering).

    I see that lots of folks, including myself, use a lighter/faster rolling tire on the back and more chunky up front for typical norcal trail/AM riding. So, if I were you, I'd save the 2.2's for the rear, and just replace the front with the 2.4. The rear tire sliding out is no biggie, but it's painful to drag a heavy, chunky rear tire uphill. I had a Hans Dampf 2.35 as a rear tire once. Never again. But a Hans Dampf or another similar chunky tire in the front works great - the front tire is where you want all the traction. Perhaps it's nicer to use two chunky tires when it's muddy, but this type of setup works for me for most of the year.

    I don't know foresthill, but if it's sandy conditions, the more balooney and lower the psi the better. Tubeless 2.4's would probably be good on both wheels.

    Foresthill/Auburn are mostly rocky hardpack, smooth hardpack, or loose over hardpack. Haven't ridden much other places so I can't really compare. Not sandy though.

    I have a friend who races and said the x-king is more of a front tire. I take everything he says with a grain of sand because his needs are very different from mine. You think it'll be fine for a rear and get a chunkier front? Mountain King II, Ardent, High Roller?

    I have 3 of the x-kings that are almost new so hopefully I can use them as rears because the front leaves me wanting more and I don't want to scrap these.

    OK, I was trying to think of conditions where the narrower XC rear and chunk up front advice wouldn't be ideal, but looks like for your conditions this would work great. I still think if you are wanting more up front than the x-king 2.2, it should be perfect for the back. Save your money, and when those wear out, then take your friend's advice for a faster rear tire. If he's racing XC he'd be wanting faster-rolling tires all around. But it's fun to have a big and chunky tire up front for non-competitive riding.

    As for which brand for the front, maybe someone else can comment. I think it is entirely a matter of personal preference and/or current sale pricing Go with 2.4 or 2.35, (for DH-specific riding, 2.5) look closely at the knobs. Do they look chunky with a gradual progression from center to outer knobs? (i.e. no dead spot?) If so, it will hook up well and instill confidence.

    Thanks.

    If the x-king will work decently out back I'll just buy a new front and replace the rears as needed and won't have to buy a new one of those for a long time.

    I have

    3x conti x-king
    1x bontrager xr1
    1x specialized fast trak
    1x geax saguaro

    Seems like all better served as rear tires...

    FM056 with Conti X-Kings 2.4's or Maxxis Ikons 2.25

    Typically ride Auburn, and Annadel
    I do a lot of XC racing and don't change my bike setup between rides and races.
    Considering getting Mountain King II's 2.4's for my front and keeping X-king 2.4 on the rears. I love running ~20 psi and floating over everything.

    I notice on some Spesh tires the recommended psi range starts at 35, even on tubeless! I too like to run them around 20-25, especially the front tire, so that's a no-go for me.

    SC Tallboy - Maxxis Ardent 2.2 in the front and Maxxis Crossmark 2.2 in the rear. Both used to run tubeless but after a few flats they are running with tubes now. (I feel guilty when all the goo spills out into the forest after a burp/flat so might not got back to tubeless)

    I'm a clydesdale and run front and rear at 28-30psi usually.
    Keep pedaling no matter what

    What kind of fluid are you using?

    I'm using Stan's and have ridden over a dozen blackberry bush branches in a row and never gotten a flat. I see dark spots on the tire where sealant has leaked and filled a hole but that's it.

    I'm still trying to find a tire that rolls well but can handle abuse. Switching to a Maxxis high roller exo in the rear KILLED the roll. Bogging. And still looking.

    Seems like OP rides a 29er. I am on a 26 so the mileage may be different. I am currently running a WTB mutano 2.4 up front with a Conti trail king 2.2 rear. The rear will be replaced when my WTB Wolverine 2.2 race comes in the mail. So mutano 2.4 up front wolverine 2.2 in the rear.

    I am not racing at this point so the weight savings and minimal rolling resistance improvements weigh less that a fun tire that can be run tubeless. Weights on these are not that bad and I have run a few Wolverine tubeless for many many miles on more than one bike and they perform great.

    When replacing my once front, then moved to rear tubeless, then tubed due to air loss Wolverine I toyed over pretty much every other tire mentioned in the thread. In the end I chose to get another wolverine.

    For me this tire combo gives great traction up front, a great climbing rear tire that also has a lower rolling resistance and a larger casing that allows for lower psi and a more plush ride.

    I chose the race over their tubeless versions based on weight. Sure the sidewalls may weep a bit but performance is what I am after. They wear fairly well for our area and I have enjoyed days at D-Ville just as well as the local race series.

    For now WTB has been my best bet. After gathering new tire buying info my thoughts are Conti's have let me down in the past, Maxxis has mixed reviews and Schwalbe's don't have staying power but perform really well.

    Tallboy C, nobby nic snakeskin front, saguaro rear. It was little sketchy when it was dry and dusty, but now when we got some moisture and not much dust over the rocks its fine. Running tubes because easton is out of valves.

    Bontrager XR4 Team issue 2.35 F&R on a Trek Stache (29). Great so far and have been a lot more durable then I was expecting. Pretty good not too well known intermediate tire (kinda like an ardent)

    Yeah the Bontragers are surprisingly good! (I just put on an xr3, friend loves his xr4's).

    Racer X 26" - Specialized Captain 2.3 Tubeless Front / 2.1 Capital UST rear. I like the rolling resistance / grip trade-off of these tires. Won't be changing anytime soon.

    Tallboy LTc - High Rollers UST 2.2 front & rear. Very grippy, but heavy and not fast rolling. Will save for Downieville shuttling. Probably more tire than I would ever need though.

    2.2 Ardent UST front and 2.2 Ardent Race UST ordered and should be delivered by early next week. Ardent Race coming from Australia as I couldn't find any supply in the U.S. These will be replacing the High Rollers.

    I got a Purgatory 29x2.3 for up front... hoping that helps.

    Going to leave the X-King in the rear for now.

    I've been loving the 2.35 Butcher/2.2 Purgatory combo on my Mojo (26").

    But since Specialized sucks Schweddy Balls (corporately speaking), I'm open to suggestions!

    What's wrong with them? They seem heavy compared to competitors but that's it.

    The Conti is a sidewall protection model and the Specialized isn't and it's still 50g lighter.

    I've been using Nevegal's front and rear for quite some time. I have a 5" travel bike and ride Auburn all the time. In my opinion one of the best tires I've ridden in terms of hooking up. But really slow rollers. I tried doing something with a smaller block but it just broke loose too much. I'm a big guy though 250 w/o gear. I've been really thinking about trying something new though. It's just tough to spend $120 just to see if I like a tire.

    Yeah, I still feel like it really sucks when I replace a set of tires and don't like the new ones at all. When I bought the slant six set I could say they rolled a hell of a lot faster, however didn't hook up at all when I was bombing. I felt like I was going to injure myself with them so I ended up just buying another set of Nevegals.

    I ride the shall not be named "S" brand Rockhopper Expert 29er (got it used) with a rigid Salsa fork. Running Geax Saguaro 2.2 F/R right now (tubeless). I am switching to a Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.35 front and a Maxxis High Roller II Tire 29x2.30 rear. Looking for a little more squish and just something a little different. The Saguros have been really durable. They were a pain in the a$$ to mount up but have been trouble free since.

    I ride Rockville, Pena Adobe/Lagoon Valley and Annadel in my area.

The Saguros have been really durable. They were a pain in the a$$ to mount up but have been trouble free since.

    I ride Rockville, Pena Adobe/Lagoon Valley and Annadel in my area.
    That's a really aggressive combo!

    I've completely signed off from using Schwalbe tires because of how expensive and fast wearing they are, but I'd be interested in hearing how the High Roller is.

    I was a little apprehensive about plunking down the cash as I have heard about the fast wearing nature of the Schwalbes too but I figured that I'd give 'em a shot and then decide for myself if the wear was a big enough issue to not use them. I have heard great things about their traction and tracking.

    I will try and remember to post up after breaking them in a couple of months.

    That really depends on the compound. The softer compounds wear quickly, the pacestar is not too bad. The saguaro on the other hand, seems like it will last forever, and it costs less.

    I purchased the Pacestar compound on the Hans Dampf. I figured the trailstar, while reportedly tacky, would wear too fast for my comfort.

    My Saguaros have lasted forever. Solid deal on a great tire. I was just looking to try something new and different. If I "had" to keep rolling them, I wouldn't be upset.

    I'm using the Hans Dampf Trailstar as a front tire. As is one of my regular riding partners. Based on the wear we are seeing to date, I fully expect this tire to last about 1600 - 1800 miles.

    Current mileage on my tire is about 800. Mileage on my buddies is around 1200.

    I certainly couldn't justify running this as a rear tire for the cost... But I think it could possibly be justified for the front.

    Ibis Mojo with Conti Trail King 2.2 in the back and Kenda Excavator in the front. The Trail King is my fave rear tire right now and I'm not planning on swapping this on my trail bike. Still looking for a better front though. Love the Conti Der Kaiser on my dh bike so I'm kind of a Conti whore right now.

    I will never ever buy Schwalbe again...3 pairs of Fat Alberts (they sent me 2 more after I showed them the first) and all of them had ripped knobs after a few rides. Lame and the ride wasn't anything great.
