For what conditions?cptjack said:What 2.3 sized tire has the best grip, reasonably light, and is the fastest rolling.
(Shiggy---I know you are rolling your eyes, but think of it as a test question )
"muddy, sandy, sloppy..." and you are worried about rolling resistance? To me traction is much more important. If you can not drive forward or hold a line a tire is useless.cptjack said:muddy, sandy, sloppy east coast with some technical
Try one of the Kenda tires (Blue Groove, Nevegal, Kinetics) with the Stick-E rubber. Weights are relatively light for a 2.3 and traction is awesome. IMO...they roll well for a soft rubber 2.3 but you will forget about that once you experience the traction and control. You might be able to drop down to a 2.1 and save some weight if you run the BG or Nevegal because they run a little big.cptjack said:i guess people are most unrealistic when it comes to tire selection. I dont expect a frame to be a down-hill and cross country -- but i want a wheel tire combo that is light and rugged and fast rolling with huge knobs etc..... I want what doesn't exist.
