    Tire Woes, Monocog 29er

    Want to throw some new ones on for fall, I just can't seem to track down reliable information. There is a lot out there, but none very consistent. I have narrowed down a few choices, but I am very open to suggestions.

    I am moving away from nevegals because I want to try something different. I was looking at the following tires and I want to know how true to size they are, what sizes to consider, and and other factors to look out for when shopping.

    -Continental trail kings, Black chili
    -Nobby Nics
    -WTB weirwolf

    The terrain I ride is medium to very loose, some packed gravely soil, and occasional hardpack.

    I want a tire that will perform similiarly to the old nevegal's but offer something different.

    I like the Panaracer Rampage. I'm using the Nevegal now but when the wear out I will be getting the Rampages again.

    Out of those you listed I'd give the trail king a shot. I have it on my 26" bike and I like it, seems to be pretty true to size. On my mono belt I have a nevegal 2.2 up front and a wtb bronson 2.2 on back. Working ok so far but I ride different conditions from you it sounds like, I'm in the pacific northwest getting ready for the rain. Maxxis ardents also get a lot of love as a good all around tire.

    Check with your LBS and see what works well in your area.
    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.
