    I think this is a downhill/freeride forum. We really don't care about weight. I like the High rollars by Maxxis but they weigh a little more.

    jacka$$. Considering the nature of this forum, DH/FR, one might come to the conclusion that DH racers are concerned w/ things such as rotational weight/resistance, etc. as it factors in to ones overall performance. Especially when one, myself, is looking for a better tire for my gf's bike.

    You may feel it in your best interest to ride as heavy a bike as possible and to attempt humor at my expense, but trust me, neither item makes you a better/cooler rider.

    Here is your best option, the Arrow "The Bite". Here are the specs...
    The Bite:
    as the saying goes, “if it works, don’t fix it” it has been a favorite for over ten years, a rounder profile and ramped center knobs to eliminate speed scrub.

    <TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 width=430 border=0><TBODY><TR><TD vAlign=top>tire</TD><TD vAlign=top>static width*</TD><TD vAlign=top>tire diameter</TD><TD vAlign=top>bead</TD><TD vAlign=top>weight**</TD><TD vAlign=top>duro</TD></TR><TR><TD vAlign=top>The Bite 24 x 2.10-LT</TD><TD vAlign=top>2.1</TD><TD vAlign=top>24.5”</TD><TD vAlign=top>ST/KV</TD><TD vAlign=top>790/737</TD><TD vAlign=top>67</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>



    I started using this on my XC bike years ago when I started using 24" rear tires. It's a really great tire, from an awesome company. Gus rocks. The tire actually measures about 2.2-2.3". I have one that's fairly new, used on maybe 3 rides, if you want it cheap send me an email. I have no use for it, it's too narrow for my Big Hit, I prefer 2.5+ tires.

    Spec Roller Pro RS (in the 700-800g range), check their website:
    http://www.specialized.com/SBCEqSect...ainEnduroAggro
    there seem to be more 24" in '04 than '05, so if you can find some '04 at your LBS they might be cheap.

    watch it bro. I wouldn't call WCH anything but my hero. you have some serious problems if you belive that his answer qualifies as a "jacka$$". WHC is a fountain of knowlege when it comes bicycle gear and he is also one of the hardest throwing hucksters around. So why don't you bow down and pay some respect, biznatch.

    Dude, take it easy. People on this board tend to be a bit smarmy. Mostly, nobody means anything by it. If you keep that in mind, it keeps the girlie internet slap-fights to a minimum. Smart-ass comment followed by helpful info is pretty standard fare.

    Not to bag on you personally. But if what your saying were true, people wouldn't bag on the Monster T everytime someone mentions it or posts a pic of their bike with one.

    Who was he talking too? That was Shiver Me Timbers he was getting up on not WCH. However I agree WCH is a pretty cool cat and has definitely earned his place. Although that's not to say SMT hasn't.

    But alot of people on this board seem to have a double standard when it comes too heavy duty parts. While heavy tires, stems, etc seem to be acceptable, heavy forks are another story. Go figure. Ride what you like.

    thanks for the quality info, I already emailed you regarding purchase. Since you like 2.5 tires, I've got an '03 24x2.5 Maxxis High Roller that's been on my gf's bike. It's been on perhaps 2 dozen rides, still has about 95% tread left. If you'd like to swap or are otherwise interested in that tire, lemme know!

    I only use that

    saw on special occasions...falling big timber is scarier than any drop. If it bucks it'll knock yer head clean off! Mostly I use my lil 16 in. for building trails (cleaning up down trees for log rides, etc.). My 16 is a cheap craftsman and is responsible for prolly 80-90% of the rungs on my hometown trails (Blackrock trails, near Salem, OR) that saw is the best. In fact, it's going to get quite a work-out this weekend & next as we'll be starting the winter building season, stoked on that! In fact, some pics of WCH were posted here not to long ago and he was riding those trails. They're meager now, but, they're all legal as I have a contract with the Oregon Dept. of Forestry. They won't be meager after this winter, that's for sure.

    Schwalbe makes a real light 24 x 2.4 I forget the model name I think it's the Racing Ralph, but I know it uses their evolution rubber that is hella grippy. Arrows are OK, I've got plenty of them, but they aren't as light or grippy as the new Schwalbe.
