I like having a fatter tire in the front. It holds better in turns and loose material. The back tire can dig in and push with less resistance. If you find you are spinning out and losing traction then you need more tread on the ground. I weigh 225 so I put plenty of pressure on the back tire.

Sounds like a nice build you are putting together. A rail to trail bike, sounds like we need a new name. Post some pictures.
