    Slant six and Maxxis Advantage

    What do you guys think about a Slant Six 2.35 on the rear and a Maxxis Advantage 2.2 on the front? Or would it be better the other way around?

    I run the slant six on the rear and the Nevegals in the front and love the combo, I haven't been able to ride beyond there capability on hardpack and it feels confident for me. I always put the most aggresive tire in the front for the grip.
    Still learning how to keep the rubber side down.

    Bigger, more aggressive tyre goes up front.
    My Cannondale Lefty keeps failing....

    Thanks for the input guys.

    Turner, what tire sizes are you running. I've seen lots of people with Navegals front and slant six on back. Maybe I should try that combo instead. How well does that combo handle in mud? The trails in my area have several muddy spots during the spring time.

    Thanks
