    Going tubeless

    Going to go tubeless for my Mojo SL. What are the best tires for the front and rear for normal XC riding? Also what size is best for the front and rear? Is it best to have a larger tire on the back or on the rear?

    Can't comment for tubeless as I am in the process of going through this now, but I always run a wider on the front for steering and slightly narrow on the rear for less resistance/easier to spin up out of corners.

    As for which tyres, there are plenty of opinions. I have been running RaRa/RoRo but going to give maxxis Crossmark and Ignitor a whirl this season.

    Hope this helps

    Are you using UST spec rims, Stans rims, or some other ghetto system?

    What kind of terrain do you ride on? Mud, sand, hardpack, gravel, etc?

    I'm going to use my wheelset and use stans kit to convert. I may invest in a new wheelset later but can't afford it right now. Most of my rides are hardpack, some mud at this time of year. I live in Nor Cal.

    I would say stans, since the kit is being used.
