    Searched the forums and did find some info on the Syncros BHTs.. but nothing recent.

    The BHT2 looks like a good fit for my full rigid AM rig.. but I hate ordering tires that look good on the net but don't measure up in person-- then i have to mess around with returning them, etc..

    Syncros BHT 2.5
    How's the volume on this tire-set? (full rigid, so need large vol)
    Is "2.5" accurate?

    For reference:
    (I want to stay under 1k g)
    Maxxis Advantage 2.4, great tire, too hard
    WTB MotoRaptor 2.4, great tire, slightly too narrow.
    Conti Diesel 2.5, pretty good
    WTB Weirwolf 2.5, awesome tread, but no volume, more like 2.3
    Specialized Enduro 2.4, perfect all around, sidewalls too thin
    Nevegal 2.5 and Big Betty 2.4 both look good and are contending.

    I'm a Xc rider of bigger stature.. so I like beefy gear. No real hucking or massive drops.

    Don't know about the Syncros, but I had Nevegals on my old hardtail and they were awesome. I'd put them on my FS AM bike if it weren't tubeless.
