    New to 29er and need input on 29er tires
    I just recently purchased a new(to me)vassago ss 29er and i'm in desperate need of tire suggestion. I've been researching all day already and i need some positive input from you guys that have been riding 29ers for awhile.

    Here is what i am looking for:

    29er tire 2.3 or bigger
    It has to be tubeless
    and more aggressive than xc(perhaps all mountain) that can bite socal trails.

    I want to buy them today or tomorrow.:thumbsup:

    When you say tubeless, what your going to get is Tubeless Ready in the 29er world. UST bead but a lighter weight casing that usually (but not always) needs sealant to be air tight.

    Specialized Purgatory Control 2Bliss 29 x 2.4 and Specialized Eskar Control 2Bliss 29 x 2.3 are two big meaty tubeless 29er tires that come to mind.

    I run Ardent 2.4 in the front and Crossmark 2.1 (both from Maxxis) in the back. Great combo and very popular around here.
