Two of the same size tires?

I just ordered some shadow stradas and they only come in one size. Do you guys think two of the same size is retarded looking or does it have to be fat in the front and skinny in the back.

I've tended to always run fatter fronts. Some older frames don't have the room to run a larger front. My current frame has bearly bough room for a 2.2 and I have to keep my wheel very true

I used to have 2.25 in front and rear until i ripped a hole in the rear tire and I found it fine.

i run 2.25 in the front and 2.1 or something in the back both fit about 100 psi it feels fine but it does look a little weird if you stare long enough and notice the size comparison


Last words?
Just have fun on your bike.

I run the same sized tire front and back, to me it looks retarded when people run a wide as tire and skinnier one

It shouldnt matter how it looks, itll feel good. I think having the same size tires makes your bike more balanced feeling. When i ran a skinny tire in the rear and a big one in the front, it made it easier to spin. With a fat tire there is more balance and such, but a little harder on spins. It makes the headtube more steep feeling due to the extra rise on the rear tire in comparison to a small tire in the back and rear in the front.
