I am looking to swap out my front XC tire for something beefier, but not insanely heavy or crazy DH. I ride a 2005 Rocky Mountain Element 50 and do almost entirely XC but my IRC Mythos front tire doesn't give me much confidence. What would you guys recommend for the front? I've seen the Panaracer Trailblaster and the IRC Trailbear. Those are 2.5's and that seems beefy, but without being too huge. Go ahead and send me your suggestions. Oh yeah, the terrain I ride is always dry. No mud or sand.
