Hi all. My ex8 comes spec'd out with Bontrager xr5 Team issue in a 2.6 front and rear. This is definitely a wider setup than I'd need or prefer, but in the interest of saving some coin I'm looking to just replace the rear tire for now. I've been running nothing but maxxis as of late so I'm not to keen on what bontrager rear tire to pair with the front tire. Ride typical northeast singletrack. Alot of roots, sometimes wet. I'm looking for something in bontragers line similar to a maxxis rekon I guess that maybe even rolls a little better in a 2.3 or 2.4 size. I need grip in the rear but din't want something too draggy. What would you pair it with?
