    tyre suggestions

    im heading up to mountain creek in north jersey tommorow to ride for the day at diablo freeride park. its been rainy for like a week but is supposed to clear up tommorow. it will be really muddy and wet.

    i have a michelin comp32, a comp 24soft, a maxxis highroller 2.5 60a compound and a maxxis 2.35 60a compound. i was planning on running the comp 32 up front but dont know what i should run in the rear.

    any suggestions?

    Maxxis Mobster in the rear gives great mud release and crap loads of traction. Either that or comp32 in the rear as well

    I use the highroller as a front tire

    ya, i think ill go with the mobster in the rear, i only have one comp32 and the joker only fits a small 2.6 tyre anyways. and plus, i would hate having to take off the comp32 again, those are the thoughest beads ive ever worked with.

    I bought some big ass park tire levers because tubeless tires are a real ***** to get off. I suggest you do the same if you have trouble changing your tires.. makes your life so much easier when you don't have to use a flimsy piece of plastic or metal to pry off a tight tire bead.
    My money pits:

    Cannondale Jekyll 500 with Avid Mechs and Sun DS2 rims with XT disc hubs.

    Cannondale F900 with SRAM XO shifters/derailler, Mavic X3.1 tubeless wheels, Avid Mechs, Race Face Next LP cranks, Time ATAC pedals, SRAM levers.

    Thats why I like Maxxis. I can use my hands to pull off the tire

    I destroyed a set of Maxxis Mobsters in a little over an hour. Tore the sidewalls by pinchflatting, and shucked knobbies left and right. Just thought id mention that, but i ride like an idiot, so i may not be a very good source.
    Dont PM me.
