    what kind are you looking for.

    XC, DH, AM, Road?

    Any specific brands? Specialized, Bontrager, Maxxis, Schwalbe....

    Looking for more AM than XC, and 2.2-2.35.

    I have no brand loyalty. I've been eyeballing the Schwalbe Hans Dampf but want something more economical.

    I picked up a pair of 29r Hans Dampf at Fat Tire back in Oct - not cheap, but then no LBS is going to have much of a tire selection that is discounted.

    You can do well shopping online, but you will have to wait a few days to get it. If you need instant gratification and willing to pay a bit more, check out Fat Tire/ABQ BikeWorks/The Kick Stand/Two Wheel Dr etc.

    I have had the Pacestar and Trailstar HDs. They are the best tires I have ever had. So predictable, and easy to maneuver. Traction is superb, but not overwhelming.

    sports systems usually has a bit of schwalbe and maxxis on the shelf. That being said, continental makes a few tires that are affordable and work well in the local stuff.
    SC:12' Butcher (sold)
    SC:12' Superlight 29er (sold)
    SC:12' Juliana (wife's)
    SC:12' TBLT

    Conti Trail King, X king, MTN King, depending on application (XC, AM) work well around these parts. Hans Dampfs are really good, but most of the other Schwalbe selection is a bit delicate aggressive riding.

    I really like geax tires. Much cheaper then the others lots of tread patterns and sturdy side walls.... also if you dont have tubeless rims they fit real tight on just about any rim. Tubless is a waste of time and energy. But ill save that rant for the beginners forum

    i think once you have a tire with a hard enough casing. that low pressures don't work as well as a thin walled tire. and if you cant run low why bother... half the timei ended up with tubes in cause id forget to add stans or snake bite the tire (mountain king,bronson,high roller) then i didn't like running any psi under 25... .. ill try again after i get some minions with the ust dh casing..... until then its old school for me

    Bring your own tube(s) next time!

    and i started out tubeless that day... i got my own patches too... which is a good point since you cant trail patch or reseal tubless

Slime tubes are for suckers, and patches don't work when you have and infatuation with cacti.

    im just being a whiny *****. tubeless is better but not by so great a margin that running tubes has become impractical or debilitating. both need maintenance. ill just be spending time patching tubes untill i get some other tires...
