God Told Me...Buy These Tires!

I have just found THE best tires! Tioga realesed a new line of tires for Freeride and XC.

White Tiger
Black Turtle
Yellow Kirin
Red Phonix
Blue Dragon

For months i have been searching for a good Freeride/XC tire, and obeveosly, i had some trouble finding that. But after seeing a magazine Ad for the Yellow Kirin, i called up a few bike shops, and one had a pair for 150$. So this morning, i bought the set, but them on, and WOW! It rolls really fast like an XC tire, but it's 26x2.4 size makes it a sweeeet freeride tire. If your in the market for new tires, check out Tioga's new ones (listed above). You WON'T be dissapointed!

DB Man...get Maxxis Highroller 2.3. They run narrow but ride really fast.

Tioga's are great for the price. I ran them my first year and never had a problem EXCEPT with wear.
