What size tire?
What is the width of the tire you prefer for cross country races?
My bike if a rigid and my races are less then 20 miles typically. I have been using a 2.2 front and rear, but was thinking of switching to a 2.0 for the rear, and maybe the front, for next season.
Hi, i run 2.0's on my hardtail for all conditions, bot mostly run on hardpack dirt or rocks. It depends on the type of conditions you are experiencing. I find 2.0's perfect for dry to slightly wet conditions. I have run bigger 2.2/2.3 tyres in the wet. Larger tyres might also be better at absorbing bumps if your on a rigid bike, but shouldnt be 2 uch of a difference. Hope this helps, Chris.
