    big 2.0's and 2.1's

    Hutchinson Spiders, Scorpions, Kenda Nevegal 2.1s, Tioga Extreme XC 2.1.

    Kenda Karma's aren't bad for a 2.0 either.

    Most current Specialized tires, especially the Resolution (Adrenaline) and Fast Trak.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Why does it have to be a 2.0-2.1 tire? Just pick the tire with the volume you want regardless of the numbers on the sidewall.

    ahh yes, i should have added that i was looking for a 2.0 sized tire trying to keep weight an issue i dont need anything bigger than a 2.1 for my riding and anything bigger than that will just bring more weight with it.
    thats why ive always been fond of the pythons - 2.0, 480g, BIG volume, fast
    so basically im looking for something with similar specs.

    Not true and does not make sense. The MutanoRaptor 2.4 is lighter than many "2.1" tires. The Schwalbe Fast Fred 2.35 Is bigger than the Mutano 2.4 and weighs less, under 530g.

    Many 2.0-2.1 tires are larger than other 2.3-2.4 tires.

    Ignore the labels and buy the tires.

    Highly reccomend the adrenaline, 630g and VERY large volume...Biggest 2.0 I've seen so far.

    Yo Shiggy

    The Schwalbe Fast Fred 2.35 Is bigger than the Mutano 2.4 and weighs less, under 530g.
    I've ridden the Mutano 2.4's and I really like them for a front tire but I was wondering how the Schwalbe Fast Fred 2.35's compared with the Python 2.3. I was thinking of using it as a rear tire on my 575 (currently using Python 2.3's for the rear).

    speaking of Resolutions Shiggy....I thought it was funny when I went to pick mine up a couple of days ago. The tire does indeed say Resolution but the packaging still said Adrenalin which confused the shop guys till i tried to explain that had happened best I could. Looks like a sweet tire....only got one for the rear but will probably get one for the front. I was impressed with the volume too.

    cheers

    Yes, and due to the lack of tread, it also doesn't have as much traction as some 2.1 tires either...

    MUCH thinner (road race type) casing (the 2.3 Python uses a DH type casing). Almost no tread (works great on hardpack and sand).

    Which can be said of many other tires, too. It depends on the conditions and your needs.

    The point is still ignore the stated size and pick the tire for its actual characteristics.
