Forekaster/Aspen worked better than expected for the Nimby considering the rain. Might have to give 2.6's a chance soon... has anybody tried the Forekaster or Rekons? Not a hardtail rider myself, but 100mm so less than most. Looks like they weigh less than I expected.

I was using the 2.6 Rekons as a rear tire. They were pretty good, rolled fast. Obviously less braking traction than a Minion, but still fine. I was a fan of the 3C Max Terra because it still had grip on wet rocks, unlike the 2C or faster compounds. Although I flatted them a bunch on my hardtail. When I took them off before the Nimby I had 4 plugs in them from 8 months of use.
