I'm still running the Continental MTB light 26X1.75-2.5 tubes I installed back in Dec.
I flatted one when I hit a tree (HARD) while running 6psi

My girlfriend and I both are running the lighter tubes and it makes a world of difference..... 1.8 pounds if I remember correctly.

The biggest difference is in steering FEEL.
The giroscopic effect of the big wheel/tube/tire combination is crazy at speed and the lighter tube makes it feel alot more like a NORMAL front end.
