    The trails around me wear tires out in 200 miles, so buying $50 tires makes no sense. Smoke/Dart &/or Fire XC Pro. Less than $20 each and work quite well.

    the crossmarks are a great tire. I highly recommend them.

    What about a good narrow hp slick? I hear Conti makes a 120 psi tire, anyone used those?

    I used the Small blocks on my 29er. It worked fine for me on hardpack and did OK with loose over hardpack (like sand, pine needles, etc)
