    Hope WTB Bronson/Nano

    Anyone use this tire here in MN yet? Got a set coming off a nice trade and am curious how others see it?

    I was planning on running my Nano on the rear with one of these bad boys up front, I currently run a Ardent/WWLT combo tubeless on flows which is alright but the WWLT will slip on the uphills (ride SS).

    I hear this tire does quit well when it gets slick which the Ardent does not seem to do well for me at all, it packs up real nice and never seems to clear.

    I have never like nano on the back rim in wet or muddy conditions. I love the bronson in all conditions...but I ride a 26 bike.

    You mention 4 different tires here, but never specify the sizes (there are two for the Ardent) or which are for front and which for rear use. I assume you are talking 29" here?
    15mm is a second-best solution to a problem that was already solved.

    I've never ridden the Bronson, but I've heard good things about it. I run 26x 2.1" Weirwolf race tires front and back and they are pretty good. They also make a 2.3" Weirwolf that I suspect might be a good/similar sub to the Bronson.
