yes, my buddy *who is 130ish pounds...* runs 1.95 tires front and back, with a little Mantiou mars fork, with a trek hardtail and does 6-7 foot drops on it, he's a very smooth rider though and obviously not to heavy of a guy. it basically depends on you wether your tire will holdpotvinwannab said:lolz well i dont like tubeless anyways and will replace tires asap, funny though, why would they put a race xc tire on a khs dirtjumper? but anyways my question is will 2 inch of tire take the occasional 2-5 foot drop.
