I'm fairly sold on these Black Shark Mud tires and will be ordering them from my LBS shortly. I still have a few questions, however. It's been a long time since I've run anything less than 2.3 up front and I'm a little sketchy about it. Shiggy's site gives them an actual 2.0 width making them even skinnier. What's a good psi starting point for this tire? Is it going to be hell trying to fit it onto Mavic 521's? How is the rolling resistance as compared to the Nokian NBX 2.3? The Schwalbe site doesn't mention F/R specific but the tread looks failry paddle like [rear specific] - how is it as a front tire? Does the light version feel stable enough or would the double defense be a better option [stiffer sidewalls]? Are they appropriate for Mac Forest snotty clay mud?
Thanks for any answers anyone might have.
