    Tire for a SS newbie?

    As of this week I am the proud owner of a BOSS with a rigid orange fork. What would be a nice tire to run with this setup? Any beta would be appreciated.

    WTB 2.4 Mutanoraptor, WTB 2.4 Motoraptor, WTB 2.5 Weirfwolf. All great tires for singlespeeding in my opinion.

    Where are you? What conditions?

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    thanks

    thanks for the info on the tires, now I have to make a decision....I live in Michigan and ride a variety of trails, not so much in the winter though.

    A few more candidates for you:

    Hutichinson Mosquito 2.3 - nice tall profile for rigid.. nice and cushy. Pretty good in most stuff except gloopy mud. I got them for a 24hr race and they roll well whilst still being grippy enough for SS

    Nokian NBX 2.3 - not as tall as some but nice and grippy with nice agressive side lugs. One of my favourite tyres at the moment (in a mud ridden UK winter!)
