    111K Tire Recommendations?

    Coming from New England to race the 111k in a couple weeks and have never ridden Pisgah before...Looking for a recommended tire setup out of the following tires for a 29er Hardtail:

    (2) Racing Ralph 2.25
    (1) Racing Ralph 2.35
    (2) Maxxis Aspen 2.1
    (1) Kenda SB8 2.1
    (1) WTB Nano 2.1

    I am thinking RR 2.35 Front and RR 2.25 Rear....thoughts?

    Of the list given, that's what I'd choose. That's probably a little lighter than most people's choice, but if your tech skills can do it and it's dry, more power to you.

    I'm -not- a fantastic rider, so I'm on a 2.4 ardent/2.35 ikon.

    Thanks....when you say a little lighter I assume you mean durability? I liken the RR to the ikon in terms of traction. What are most running in the area?

    You should be fine on the RR's. The setup you describe is exactly what I use on my hardtail.

    Ardents seem to be popular around here. I also like NN's. I rode PMBAR on a FS rig with an ardent 2.25 in the rear and NN 2.35 in front. Most other participants seemed to have lighter/smaller setups, and someone even commented on my "huge" front tire.
