    Hans is a very good tire...but they wear very quickly and you're going to wear them faster, particularly that rear, WAY faster than the standard 190# pencil neck. $70 a pop too, that's hairball...unless you have money to burn.

    Are the wheels roundish? Ride it.

    Check amazon. I found them for $53 shipped a few weeks ago.

    Evolution line (the best), trailstar compound, snakeskin sidewall, tubeless. Basically all the bells and whistles, not some cheap model.

    yea I got mine from ebay 113.00 in all (1 trailstar ,1 pacestar both evo).... I was concern the the wear but seeming as my boys are still in good shape thought I would do alright.....hey Imakyde thanks for the advice , I recently pick up a 29er hardtail(Norco nitro) just for commuting ,fireroads , family rides etc using my fs strictly for the trails.......
    Ride hard everytime....or take up hiking...........lol

    Loving the Butcher I put up front. The ardent 2.25 rear is good too but sucks unless totally dry

    I am 6' 230lb without gear on. On my 26" bike I really liked the Purgatory front Captain rear or Butcher front Ground control rear...both combinations worked great in a wide variety of conditions. Currently on my 29" bike I am running a 2.5 Minion DHF on the front, tubeless at 26lb and a 2.3" Knobby Nic tubeless at 28lb on the rear. This is a great combination for me as well.

    Real Clydes don't worry about the tire. They know they are applying enough pressure through it to get a grip in any condition!

    For the dry summer conditions I am running a 2.4 Ardent front and 2.35 Ikon rear. Great combination for hard and soft over hard, nice rolling setup as well.

    Tried an HR2 and the 3C model at least has too soft/small of knobs that fold over. I have a dual compound model that was intended for the rear on nastier terrain (usually run an Ardent 2.25 out back) but I think I'll try it up front before totally ruling that tire out.

    I'm 6'2" and 260lbs and I just went from Nevagals 2.2 to WTB Vigilante 2.3 Tubeless. I have Nevagals on my 26" bike and they seem to work much better on that bike then they did on my 29ner. Both bikes are full suspension.
