tire size

I want a tire that is good for a mix of xc, freeride, and urban assualt. I was looking at a 2.4 but I think that may be to big for xc use. Any ideas on a good size?

Ummm....2.3? Not all tires are sized right....a 2.3 from one company could be as wide as another companies 2.5....just get something that you like.

He's right.
I use Kenda Kenetics there 2.3"
they work good for me (I do a little XC along with Freeride, and urban.) I'm looking at going for the Kenda Kenetic Stick E's this summer though. They are supposed to be sweet for freeride.
