    Any suggestions of a fast, drippy (in non-mud ) tires? 26 x 2.1, Tubed

    Time for new Tires.

    I'm willing to spend up to $50/tire.

    I avoid riding on muddy days (although I guess there's always a chance of *some* mud).

    Looking for a well rated tire.

    - Tubed (although will consider tubeless is they go on easily on a standard rim and can be inflated without a compressor (hah!)

    In Descending order of importance

    1. Good traction
    2. Fairly low rolling resistance
    3. Durable


    Thanks!

    Take a look at the Geax line, they have a tire for every trail condition just find one that fits your needs. I'm really happy with my Geax Mezcal in 2.4". They run true to size, possibly even slightly larger than marked which is what I was also wanting in a tire. My 2.4" tire measures 2.38" on only a 18mm inside width rim.

    x2 on Geax. I have the AKA on front, and the Saguaro in back. They have a tight tread that rolls well and bites well. I've been out on them a few times already and they've been great.

    Amazon.com: geax saguaro

    Not sure what size you need, but here are some links. I was able to install mine with tubes by hand...didn't need a tire tool at all.
