If you run brakes get the 1.85 because I ran a 2.20 KHE and it rubbed the brake arms even when it was pulled back in the dropouts and I couldn't run over 70psi. If you're brakeless go 2.1

I ran 2.20 front and back brakeless and it was amazing. Having the same size tire front and back feels amazing and solid as hell.

The 1.85 I know will be tiny as shit, I was stuck between the 1.85 grifter or the 1.95 fly ruben. I personally went with the ruben since it inflates to just over 2.00. I'd honestly go with the 2.1 What front tire are you running?

Do you primarily ride street? If so I'd say just order a Ruben in 2.1

If you plan to ever touch some dirt go with a ruben. Grifter just wont do good on it.
