    Hey Shiggy, Motolites and Lobo-Loco's

    Hey Shiggy, being a relative newcomer to the Titus board I have come to trust what your opinions about tires are. I have tried just about every tire made on different and various bikes and thought that the Nevegal 2.1 Stick-E on rear and the Nevegal 2.35 Stick-E on front was the perfect combo for me being as I am a clyde (280lbs). I recently put some GEAX Lobo-Loco 2.35 tires on my ML and low and behold they stuck like velcro in just about any condition that I rode in, had very low rolling resistance and seemed to have some of the best cornering of any tire that I have tried. Now looking at the tread which is really rounded and compact I don't think that they would do that well in sticky mud but really what tire does? Have you tried this tire or others by GEAX and what do you think of them if you have.

    I'm not Shiggy, but I'm pretty sure he would recomend a fairly skinny tire for mud.

    Whats up

    Good to here from you. What do you think about GEAX tires? I tried the combo of Nevs that you told me about and they were great. Maybe I was just looking for something different eh?

    Those were your words not mine. I think you'll get Shiggy's attention easier on the wheel tire board.

    I've never tried those tires. Shiggy does recomend skinny tires I've noticed for muddy conditions, though for our trails around here, I would'nt...

    Yea, I've heard the Sturdy is a great rear tire for wet, "greasy" rocks and roots. It's heavy, but for a clyde I guess it wouldn't matter much.

    Black is right, Shiggy won't see your message here.

    Do a search on the Geax Sturdy, I'm sure you'll find some great stuff...

    660g for 2.25 folding bead isn't really heavy... tall profile though, with my DT 4.1 rims it barely clears the seatstay bridge on my ML.
