    Favorite tire(s) for colorado trail riding?

    Ive been running Nevegals for ever and a day now, love em, but theres so many tires out there i feel like its a shame not trying out new tires. What are yalls favorites? I ride up as much as i ride down, but i love to rip the downs! I do mostly "trail riding", whatever that means, on a 5 spot. Centennial Cone, Buff Creek, Fruita, various Crested Butte rides, Green Mt, Apex, Mt lion trail....you name it and i probably ride it.

    Im thinking Minion up front, and ?????? on the rear??? I was also thinking fat albert up front. Thoughts and/or suggestions pleas?

    After the lack of threads on "best front range tires," I hear people are riding on rims only.

    It saves a lot of weight and you don't have to deal with the Stan's versus tubes issue.

    They also work great on tightrope riding.

    I call BS on rims for tightrope riding. I only use slicks for that. In fact, I only use slicks up to 1.5 to ride everything on the front range. You know how fast you can ride Hall on slicks? Did it with the lollipop in 20 minutes flat. Won't see me going near a knobby tire ever again!

    Currently I'd recommend 3.5" studded tires.

    Try a search.
    This question has been answered approximately 9,125,617 times in the past 6 months.
    I think that's what everyone's trying to say.

    Maxxis Max Cross IT :0 and oh wait- he said Favorite tire for "Colorado"- - not the Front Range--

    so he must be talking about tires that work in dirt?? and not pure granite and rock

    You mean hellish-clay mud?



    It's still the same question...because if you try to lawyer the wording, then you will have to lawyer the wording on all the past posts too.

    Bzzzzzzzzzzzt!

    Why do people get so butt hurt when someone asks a question thats been asked before? Chill out people...some of us dont spend 12 hours a day on mtbr.com....ie, we actually work and ride bikes and do other stuff called living life.
    Thanks to those who have provided useful information.

    That question has been asked before. Use the search function.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    I searched for "butt hurt" and came up with 200 pages. I think we should move on and come up with some fresh slang. I propose the following:


    ________
    frumpled
      /ˈfrʌmpəld/ [fruhm-puhld]
    –adjective
    1. To become agitated after seeing the 100th post asking for advice on the internet regarding a product's application that varies too greatly for said advice to be useful.
    2. see butt hurt

    You should get some with black rubber, holeless feature is good too.

    Well, pretty much everything is better than Nevegals...

    My fav's are Minion fronts for both front and rear... Yeah, I had Nevegals and got rid of them after the 9th flat in a week.
