I can still get my favorite Maxis tires in 26 inch at MEC!  Cam it's funny that you mention that some riders are not picky about tire choice and run higher tire pressures are better riders? No I'm an average rider who believes how I negotiate wet roots is far more crucial than tire compound. I do plenty of wet root diagonal tire slides in the winter . I would not attempt to turn on a wet root with my front tire.  We all have our favorite tire and just like shoes it's a personal choice.   I like the fact that my 26 inch Minions weigh 850 grams and I can't complain about the traction. I think how the carcass responds to your personal choice of tire pressure is most important.  I run my thin wall tires at higher pressure for fast gnar and air down a bit for slab trails.  I ride at a moderate speed no racing for this old man.  What's significantly better than a Maxis Minion?
