I'm in need of new tires for my bike. I've got Maxxis Ridgelines (26 x 2.1) now and I've been happy with them, but since the side wall of one is shredding I need to go ahead and get some new ones. I thought I'd ask for your collective knowledge and request your input.
I asked John Moore the other day, and he said he likes sliding around corners. I don't...DO NOT...like sliding around corners. I like things grippy. I like maintaining contact with the trail. I'm not that worried about weight (not a weight weenie by any means) but I don't want super heavy, either.
And, since I've got to get new tires, anyway, should I go for tubeless? As many tubes as I've had to change (well, had to have changed) lately it seems an interesting options.
Please, feedback wanted/welcome.
Thanks in advance,
