    Best combo (from my Harem)??

    OK, I'm doing my own head in with (650b) tyre choice combo's at the mo...

    I have 2x OEM Maxxis Ardents that I've taken off... wire bead, harsh in rock gardens, but - have worn extremely well... will keep as emergency back ups ^^

    Have just put Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.35 (FT) and Rock Razor 2.35 (RT) on steed...

    spring rain is keeping tracks a little greasy for the RR i.e. it spins a bit on wet trail and really doesn't like (wet) roots...

    I bought RR more for summer riding (summer is taking it's time getting here though)

    -=so=- I've recently ordered a Maxxis Ardent Race Exo 2.2 (for rear)...

    and I've asked Santa to get me a Conti Trail King 2.2 (Black Chilli etc.)

    I love the HD up front, but think maybe it's a lil too much tyre for my aggression levels.

    Do, I run the Trail King up front and the Ardent Race out back (giving me a 2.2 setup)...

    Or, should I keep Hans pointing the way and alternate between the Trail King and the Ardent Race out back & only use Razor for mid summer riding??

    I've even contemplated Razor up front and Race out back!?

    HELP!!??

    Took bike with new rear tear - Maxxis Ardent Race, out for spin. Heavens opened up and a deluge began. Tyre did fairly well in the wet - hard pack, rooty, rocky trail... Angled roots/wet rocks caused some slippage (don't they always!?) otherwise nice RT
