    I picked up a set of these last year. Great tires, relatively light, and they're certainly burly. They're wider than some 2.4 WTB tires that I have.

    Yeah, my brother ordered two of the 26x2.0 last summer for his XC bike and has been happy so far. I was in the market to replace my rear WTB Motoraptor 2.4, so though I give it a try for the 2.35 version. I'll let you know how it goes compared to my current 2.4 WTB.

    Got the tire in 2 weeks ago and have 2 dirt rides on them. First one was with the tire threads in a "front" rotation direction (note the tire is on the rear wheel only) and as low as 19psi. Felt the control over dust hard pack and small gravel wasn't great, washing out easy and needed to correct the rear end with my body weight when cornering. Climbing was alright I guess.

    Second ride I flipped the tire backward and run about 30 or so. Felt a lot better on the climbs over loose, better traction going down too. I still need to experiment with pressures and adapt to the more knobby rear end before I can truly pronounce myself on the tire's behaviors.

    Lighten my rear end by 210g though.
