    In the Midwest and out West (Moab, Arizona, California), I've had great luck with 29er Kenda SB8 -- either front and rear, or Karma front - SB8 rear. The flat tread lets you float quite a bit.

    im guessing you're talking about blue clay point?

    i rode it on a 2.1 weirwolf rear and 2.1 nevegal front. I wasnt that impressed, but i didnt feel like i was sliding as much as i expected

    ive busted my tail on just about every tire i have run on pine needles. the sand and roots are not that big of a deal.

    haha im quite the opposite... needles i can ride on, but where i am there are hills that I just cant pedal up... then on the ride down its pretty sketchy too...

    oh and the bugs down here make me crash more than sand and needles and everything else combined... I had this misquitoe bit me... man it was so big i felt light headed afterwards...
