ok so I'm having alot of issues with big climbs (loyce harpe = moon walk, puff n stuff, roller coaster...), I am using the stock 2.1 tires that came on my specialized hardrock. the 2 main problems I'm having are 1. grip, I've tried lowering pressure and shifting weight, and 2. running out of momentum, basically if I'm not slipping then I'm coming to a stop half way up.
if I were to upgrade which way do you go? bigger knobbs? smaller knobbs? wider? skinny? tubeless? and what is a folding tread? also can I just upgrade my rear for now since my front isn't really the issue? any other suggestions on how to improve my climb would be great?
