    Question! : What's the best tires for my Stumpy SS?

    I built this SS from my old 1994 Stumpjumper (see Picture) and I would like some opinions on what the best front and rear tire compinations would be for this type of conversion. Thanks.

    What were the best tires for it as a gearie?

    Has more to do with the terrain than the number of gears.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Speed is another factor. The slower you go, the wider range of tires that will fit your needs well.

    Well.. I guess my real question might be:

    Is it better to have a large tire in the front and a small tire int he back with low rolling resistance or high? I ride int he Pacific Northwest so wet conditions prevail int he winter but not neccessarily in the summer. Since it's winter now I wonder if skinny tires would be better to push through mud or not? Thanks.

    IRC Mythos XC 2.1s front and back.

    Shiggy's point is that you should run the same tires you would normally run. I run Mythos XCs on my Stumpjumper for trail riding, so that's what I recommend.
    When the going gets weird its bedtime.
