race tire? all-around? mud tire?

Conti Verticals are good all-around tires... they are 2.3s, though they run small.

I've got Panaracer Cinders (2.2s) on my bike now... good first impression, but I'll know more tomorrow.

Rob what you need is a nice set of grips before you get anything else....

Edit: RM censors the name of my damn grips? :mumble:
Stop being coy and tell me what kind of grips you got?

Not what I meant - terrain being a more important indicator. I ride loose, rocky, dusty, cobbly Colorado crap for the most part, along with nice loamy singletrack and the occasional rock garden for fun. All XC. The ZMax has been my tire of choice since ~98 or so.

Out of my mind, back in a moment.

Ahh, gotcha. Usually root filled, dusty hardpack with occasional rock gardens and such.

Holy thread resurrection batman.

I've settled on a tire that has some beefy side knobs to give me the ability to lean into turns better.

Any suggestions on that? I'm look at Kenda Kinetics currently.

Blue grooves and Nevegals are light years ahead of Kenetics when it comes to traction and turing but Kentics do roll faster...if you weren't so far away I have sets of all 3...you could just test ride them. I think you should go with Nevegals or BG's....D
