    What tires are you running?

    Looking to upgrade the Bontrager Jones XR's that came on my bike. Wanted to know what others in the area are rollin' on.

    When in PA, I was running the 2.25 WTB Motoraptor. Worked great for the rocky stuff.

    continental flow 2.3 front and rear. picked em up @ jenson on sale.

    really like them - they roll well, grip in just about all conditions, shed mud well

    haven't had any complaints about them so far. picked up two thorns in the rear one of the first rides, but that wasn't really the tires fault. been in muddy, rocky, rooty, pea gravel, sand, hardpack, loose over hardpack, and they have yet to falter.
    Oh noes. I'm going to drink the Kool-Aid.

    Kenda Nevegal 29ers but that's because at the time I built up my bike, Continental didn't have a vapor type tread patttern in a 29er. I've run both the nev's and the vapors and while both work great in soft and slick, the vapors rolled faster on hardpack.

    Nevegal 2.1 up front, MotoRaptor 2.14 rear. Combo works well in pretty much all conditions. They don't roll very well, but I don't usually ride smooth singletrack. When I get new wheels (OEM rims are 17mm), I will use bigger tires and go tubeless.

    My HiFi Pro sports a red-striped, reverse wheel mullet: (Yet another) Kenda Nevegal (2.35) front, and a Panaracer Fire XC Pro (2.1) in the back. Totally huge upgrade from the Bontrager Jones XR's that jeffw-13 started the post with.

    gods, but i've got too much to offer

    bike #1 - specialized roll-x 2.2 tubeless r / Specialized fast trak 2.2 tubeless f
    bike #2 - Specialized eskar control 2.3 f/r
    bike #3 - specialized roll-x 2.2 tubelss r / specialized resolution pro 29x2.3 f
    bike #4 - Specialized enduro pro 2.3 r / specialized resolution pro 2.3 f
    bike #5 - specialized roller rs 24x2.3 r / specialized resolution pro 2.3 f

    there's my 5 main bikes. i had a nevegal / blue groove combo on bike #1 but it cornered horribly, i couldn't hold a line. daily riding is in rothrock state forest and i have to admit, the speicalized tires have been good for me, but that's not to say i haven't destroyed any 10 men's share of sidewalls.
