I am looking to be on a 29er soon and am looking at tires…trying to figure out what to put on the new ride.
To give you a little context, I really love DHF's, been running a crossmark on the rear all summer and it's ok, but would like a little more downhill/cornering traction….any ideas on what 29er tire would work best for winter riding on the island?
I too had a soft spot for the DHF on my 26er. I'm on the island and have been running an Ardent 2.4 up front and Ignitor 2.1 out back. Tubed and tubeless. Seems to get the job done. I'll probably try the Purgatory/Captain combo when I wear the Maxxis pair out.
