    If you want to lighten up your bike even more, consider converting it to singlespeed.

    it depends on where you live

    if you live in a more hardpack or sandy area you could probably get away with a good wide file tread tire, but if you live in a muddier area you will want a narrower tire.

    I would run whatever you get tubeless since it is easy to do for MTBs
