    Arrow Ramped Bite? Kenda Blue Groove? tire help please.

    can anyone recommend me an east coast 2.4 to 2.6 width 24/26 tire combo?
    i ride the east coast.
    i run 2.6" nokian gazzaloddi jr's right now.
    24" rear and 26" front on my hardtail.
    i'm looking for lighter, thinner tires.
    they'll be used for urban to fr to dh.
    i'm thinking an arrow ramped bite 26x2.50
    and a kenda blue groove 24x2.50.
    arrows are pretty good around the east coast,
    how about kenda?
    seem more like a west coast tire..

    thanks for any and all responses.

    ps: i will be going to whistler this summer. any tire recommendations for that?
    thanks.

    The Blue Groove 2.50 is about the same size as the Gazzi 2.6. It may be a bit lighter.

    I use the XC casing Blue Groove 2.50 and 2.35 in western Oregon on wet, rooty, rocky twisty trails and they work very well. The Nevegal is very good, too, especially on the rear. The Stick-E rubber is very grippy.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
