I'm set with Tioga for this year for tires, except when running street, will still be on Holy Rollers for that.
They are the 2.3' Factory DH's

Nice Ride! Is it missing a front brake? Or my eyes not working today?

Nice Kona, I was running a set of Tioga factory DH's, and i think they're pretty damn good, replaced them with panaracers, but the Tiogos i prefer for all around use.

And for 11.99 i tyre you cant beat it

Tiogas are pretty good, I've had them for a while now. They grip on the trail and on the street. But I was unsatisified with these for a moment. Do tires get much better than this? I mean this thing rolls decently and grips decently!

Good choice on **** tires.....really, I dont know why people try and make them sound good. I had better luck with those tires stock on walmart bikes....at least the knobs didnt fall off of those.

Ive got some 2.3 Nokians with plenty of tread left if you wanna buy them. Could sell them pretty cheap, hold up well on street, and grip well on lots of terrain.
