I plan on visiting my buddy in Portland and we will be probably be riding Waldo and McKenzie. Was wondering what 26" tires on a geared bike I should run ? Thanks for the help:thumbsup:

Been lots of threads on this topic, search around. Generally a matter of personal preference/ride style.

I just re-purchased the same tires I've been using happily for the last 2 years, but I'm not overly concerned about rolling resistance and I don't change em up till they are dead:
2.35 Stick-E Kenda Blue Groove Front
2.1 DTC Kenda Nevagal Rear

Other recommendations:
Schwalbe Big Betty/Fat Albert
WTB Moto/Mutano Raptor
WTB Weirwolf

Good luck.

I prefer these....

but I'm a bit of a lycra wearing, weight weenie that simply despises rolling resistance....:D

Sorry I didn't respond sooner....family dropped in unexpectantly.

Thanks for the advice. Well I now run Python Lites F&R so I think I'll throw a Mutano Raptor on the back and see how it goes.

Do you think it will be O.K. mid Aug. ? I'm going up for the bridge pedal then the next day we were thinking of going to Waldo.
