    Tyres... Size and choice?

    I ride a Paragon that came with Bontrager XDX 2.1. I think it's a good tyre, but when the racing season starts, I plan on changing to Racing Ralph. Does anybody know if the 2.4 will fit on the Paragon? or should I go for the 2.25?
    Or are there other tyres out there, I should consider?

    My riding and racing is mostly done in forest, hard packed gravel, roots and stuff like that. So i.m not looking for a mud tyre.

    Cheers.

    It might complicate front derailer set up if you run a granny.
    Note that not all paragons are the same. Measure, read and compare. Or just get one 2.4 first. Lovely front anyway.

    Thanks for the replys. I think i will buy a 2.4 and try it on the rear, and if it doesn't fit, I will put it op front and buy a 2.25 for the rear.
    I really enjoyed RR on my 26, so I'm looking forward to the riding on the big wheels.
    Not many of us in Denmark.
    Cloxxki are you from Holland?

    Paragon rider also

    I am also riding an Paragon and looking to put on Racing Ralphs 2.4s or 2.25s depending on fit. Do you have the newer wider Bontrager Rythym Wheels or the older Race Wheels? The rim width could make a difference on the fit of the tire. (I have the older Race Rims but I am also looking at upgrade to the Rythym Rims).
