I put the 2.4 ardent on the rear of my taurine and took it up the mountain, it rubbed on every steep climb.

The 2.5 minion is narrower than the 2.4 ardent and fit great with no rubbing. The tire is beefy and carries a lot of rubber, to much for my taste.

I wish the 2.4 ardent was slightly smaller 1/16 on each side would be great.

The tire decended great on the taurine with a crazy amount of grip.

I just installed the 2.25 ardent on the rear of my rize, we will see how it feels tmrw on the new bike.
