So I've been thinking of getting a smaller tire in the back. Right now I have 2 2.25 Aitkens but I'm thinking of getting a 1.90 in the back, whats it like? I heard it's better.

Cons; Less grip, not as stable, more impact on landing, doesn't protect rim as well.
Pros; Lighter, faster, I dunno wut else...lol

Probably a little biased because I only run big tires, but I went from a Tioga 1.95 dirt tire to a demolition momentum 2.20 and loved it, 2.10 is probably the average for the back though, I'd try that.

I always run a smaller tire in the back
Hops feel better
Amazing feel when your going fast, you need control for it
Skids feel more sick
Less rubbing and slugish-ness on grinds

Running 2.25 tires are basically a bit bigger than 2.3 in reality, but just not as big as a 2.35.

Do not get FAF's unless they're 2.25. They wear so fast.

Always have ran 2.10's, i feel like anything bigger will be overkill and anything under will make it feel like a road bike

|

9/25/2012 7:29 AM

i ran some 1.95 and it give the bike a much different feel. its a lot quicker in turns but nothing much i feel is different other then i got more pinch flats. (ran a lower pressure tho)

I hate super fat tires, too slow for me. I actually prefer 2.1-2.2 on the Front, 1.85-1.95 on the Back.

|

9/25/2012 1:31 PM

I love the feel of fatter tires. I used to say that anything around 2.35 was just overkill until i finally tried them out. Now i could probably never go back to anything under 2.10 in the back and 2.25+ in the front. To me they just feel alot more stable and grippy.

No they don't my old one's 2.10 micro knurling lasted two-ish months and the tread STILL lasted two more months at 80% thread and I sold it to buy another one in teal wall and after a month and a half the micro knurling is wearing off barely
You guys are just dumb with your brakeless braking
