    Best 24" rear tire?

    Hey everyone, have a Bit Hit and need a new rear 24" tire? Looking at a Nevegal 24" but what is the best for East Coast DH?

    I have a bighit and a new nevegal I haven't tried yet. It looks good sitting here though. Do you know which shops / onliners have a good cheap 24" wheel ?

    First let me start by saying I'm a huge Kenda tire fan, I've got over 3 dozen of their tires in my garage. I've got 26's, 24's, DH, XC and road tires.

    However, the best 24 tire hands down I would say is the Arrow Prime Bite. It's the fastest, best cornering 24 tire I've ever used. Gus at Arrow is the man when it comes to 24 tires and it shows.

    I've got a Nokian gazza JR on the back of my bighit, which I've found to be pretty good for riding (and cornering) on dry rocky conditions and it's knobbly enough to dig into loose dirt.

    However if you ever touch the brakes while cornering it starts to give, and feels like it could easily go on you... not that you should be braking while cornering, but just my thoughts on it...
    Post your youtube mountain bike videos and they'll be included in our interactive World MTB video map!

    HOLY [email protected], where you shopping!!!

    I bought mine at Universal Cycles, only $36 + shipping.

    http://www.universalcycles.com/shopp...0&category=182

    Heck even Go-Ride lists it at $35.

    $99 is total bullshiat, I would stop shopping wherever this place is.

    Highroller or Nevagal. I ran the Arrow, Gazzo, and didnt like them. The arrow is a low profile 24" and it makes the tire feel even smaller. The Nevagal has the tallest profile and feels pretty close to a 26". Ive had a 24" rear tire for over 7 years and I have tried every 24" out there. Go with the NEV or HR.

    For pinch flat resistance nothing beats the Gazzaloddi, but the Maxxis Highroller is great for traction.
