Last weekend this bike was setup 1x9 with a Reba and 2.4/2.25 Racing Ralphs for a 50 mile xc race.

This week I decided to relax a bit and switch to rigid SS with a Knard/2.4 Ardent.

Trail was a mix of sand and technical rocks. I loved the semi-fat front! I ran ~15psi in the knard and 20psi in the ardent.

I think I'll leave the bike setup like this for now.

How did they roll? More cush than the Ardent 2.4? Faster? Did they corner well? Any squirm running 15psi? Specifics man... lol.

lol. Much cushier than ardent. My Knard is the 120tpi version and the sidewall is very plush. Yes, they were a bit squirmy, but I expected some squirm due to the rim width (surly specs a 50mm rim, mine is mounted on a 28mm ztr Flow).

Much faster rolling than I expected, definitely faster than the ardent.

Awesome! I have a flow wheelset I've been wanting to try this with, definitely be watching to see how you like it as you log more miles.
