I'm looking for some new tires. What are you guys running?
« on: June 04, 2013, 10:57:56 AM »
I ride mostly Alifia on a FS 29er. I'm looking for opinions on what are good with Alifia specifically. I'd also like some opinions if you tried a particular tire and thought it was terrible.
Thanks for any help.

You will get tons of differing opinions since it really comes down to user preference. 

For what its worth...2.4 Ardent EXO front and 2.2 Fast Trak Control rear on my ss 29er.  Front is excellent in all conditions.  Rear working out really well so far but haven't had a chance to ride it in wet conditions yet.

A 'good' ride is one that you can walk away. A'great' ride is one after which you can use the bike again.

I was running Aspens both front and rear, but was washing out a good bit. Switched to Schwalbe Racing Ralph up front and could not believe the grip difference. Going to get the Ralph for the rear now too.

SWORKS FAST TRAKS currently  but I also love Kenda Small Block 8's. Best compromise in fast rolling/traction
