Where's the 29er "Sticky" (Kenda), "Gooey" (Schwalbe), "Slow Reazy" (Maxxis) 40-50 durometer tire compounds These high performance compounds absolutely kill it on the AZ chunky rocky terrain. Its like velcro for traction. Sadly, I've got to use my 26er bikes to enjoy this performance edge. Are tire manufacturers ever going to see the light for 29ers.... The bigger wheels coupled with soft rubber compounds are going to give you unparallel traction. I'd gladly accept more rolling resistance if I never had to worry about traction concerns...
