I seem to forget that this site is read by people all around the world so sometimes good reviews for products may not apply to me so, heres the question, what tires have you tried, which have you liked and which have you disliked and where do you normally ride? Talking to people who ride in this great state will be a bit more useful than talking to someone who rides in a totally different climate/region, plus we may all have an idea of the different terrain at different parks so that may help out as well. Me, i live in ocean county and due to work and a newborn, can only get out to allaire and clayton. I am currently using 2.1 fire xc's and i have to admit, not to thrilled with them. Anyway, i guess this question is more towards the xc riders but any input will be useful, thanks.
