I know we already have a tire review thread, but I feel like we need a 29er-specific thread because there is currently a limited selection of 29er tires out there and not all 26" tires are available in 29" versions. Anyway Mario (mp3) and I were talking this weekend about finding a good set of 29er tires. Neither of us had been very happy after a few rides on 29" wheels. My current set up is 2.2 Nevegal in the front and 2.1 Kenda Klaw on the rear. No way the Kenda Klaw rear is a true 2.1 IMO. I like the Nevegal so far, but that was a safe choice since I had run it on my 26er. :bang: I give thumbs down to the Kenda Klaw rear-specific tire. It doesn't grip too well and feels like it folds in turns even when aired up to 38 psi or more. I had a Kenda Klaw 2.1 front-specific tire on for one ride on the loop. Absolutely terrible grip and way too narrow. [-( I need to find a good rear tire that I can count on. Grip and rolling resistance are important to me. I will sacrifice weight if I have to. So, what are your favorite 29er tire combos?
