    2.35 kinetics vs. 2.1 nevegals

    ok, so i just put some 2.35 kenda kinetics on my old bike and then wrecked my bike pretty hard at the end of the first ride with them. good though because it gave me an excuse to buy a new (non-dept store) bike. got a 09 giant yukon ht. that bike came with 2.1 nevegals on it. what tire would you recommend running. the one day i did get to ride the kinetics, i really liked them. i think i liked them better than these nevegals, but i am unsure as i am fairly new to mtb. i thought maybe the different bike geometry is what i am feeling and not necessarily the tires. i do like the idea of a wider tire, but again, i'm a noob!!!

    which one should i be running.

    Try them both, and experiment with pressures.

    If you don't like the Nevegal as a front tyre, just use them as rears and run the 2.35 Kinetic up front. I larger front tyre is quite common in the MTB world.
