Me, being the type of dumbass who actually rides 29x2.1 Aspens Front/Rear on snow, ice, mud, dirt, pavement - I highly recommend the experience, even if it's a total one-off. Durability isn't great on the 2.1, but it only comes in 'I wear spandex and count grams in my cereal' casing tires, but I'm pretty optimistic that the 2.25 EXO version will actually be somewhat useful.  The plan is to pair that with a 2.25 Ardent Race, and see if I can get comparable road performance, and better off-road performance. I'm waiting for the 29x 2.8/2.6 " trend to take off - because I want to run Minions front and rear with the 2.6 SS Minion (hell, I'd take a 2.4 or 2.5 MinSS in DoubleDown - basically anything that isn't dragging the corner knobs on pavement).  For my FS rig, I'm slow anywhere specific output matters, and grip limited anywhere I'm comparably fast, so that should be an ideal setup.
