So I picked up my 09 Rockhopper Expert Disc 29er SS (23") at a blowout price of $650 today and am looking for a larger higher-volume rear tire to go on the factory wheel.
I'm 225 lbs riding in FL and my main trail (8 miles) is flat and relatively slow with lots of tight turns and packed with palmetto roots. The trail is a mainly hard-pack with some sandy areas.
As mentioned prefer to start out with the factory wheel (tubed).....hoping to improve grip in corners and absorb the palmetto roots better.
