    tyres question...

    I am thinking about a new combination of tyres for my ML2.
    I am know riding on rear and front Kenda Small Block Eight and thinking to change the front tire, and only the front tyre, to Kenda Nevegal Stick-E.

    What do you say?
    Anybody tried this combination before?

    Nevegal stick-E is a slow roller. It is my favorite tire though. My only choice for wet, rooty winter riding.

    They don't last long either...should be ok as a front tire, though.

    yeah..BG is a nice front tire too.. I am running a Stick E Nev and a DTC BG on each bike right now... the Nev sticks to anything..but the BG is very capable too..especially in loose dirt/sand

    I am running Nevegal DTC front and rear on my RX (New England) and really like them. Especially for the rocks/roots. Hoping they will last a little longer than the Stick-E.
    Where/what type of trails are you riding? That makes a huge difference....

    I have a Nevegal 2.35 sticke front, and nev 2.1 dtc rear. I love their traction, but I'm looking something with less rolling resistance in the rear.

    Go with a 2.35 Nevegal (LR3 version) in back. Wider tires have lower rolling resistance.

    In Kenda tyres, the Cortez 2.4 DTC, 2.2 DTC, and the Short Tracker 2.35 (which is DTC) are all pretty solid tires. I've used them all, the Short Tracker is muy-fast but if you need wet-area traction it's not the one. The Cortez has been a great all-around friend - not as grippy as the Nevegal or Blue Groove, but faster and longer lasting.

    I'm curious if anyone has an opinion on the 2.4 Maxxis Advantage - it looks interesting but I've not known anyone that has used it yet (particularly in central Texas or Tuscon AZ areas).

    I'd put them front and rear. But thats just me! (I think my Sturdy's have mystical, healing, properties)

    Oh yea, Sturdy 2.25 UST is the ultimate rear tire! Traction for Africa.
