I'm riding a 08 Motolite and looking to switch up my wire setup. I have the stock Nevegal up front and a Hutchinson Python in the rear. I really don't like the feel of the phython. I ride hardpacked single track with a 60/40 mix of technical rocky/rooty areas and flowing smooth areas. You can feel the tires dragging along on all the climbs and a lower rolling resistance with similar cornering would be ideal. I'm considering a 2.1 Kenda small block 8 in the rear and i have no clue what i want for the front. I've been looking at schwalbe racing ralph, bontrager XDX's, specialized captians, maxxis high rollers, maxxis advantages, and maxxis ignitors. I'm not sure what to size to run in the front also. So what does the Mtbr community think?
