Long time lurker but new member from today. I raced XC in my teens and early 20's and got back into biking about 3 years ago, I'm 36 in March. Started off with a Cube hardtail and now I'm bouncing on a 2013 Canyon Nerve AL+.
I have a collection of tyres and I'm not sure which ones to use for the upcoming gravity enduro series in Ireland.
Which would you choose for front and back from the following.
2 x 2.4 Conti mountain king II black chilli protection ( came on bike )
2 x 2.1 Kenda small block 8's
1 x 2.35 Maxxix high roller II
1 x 2.5 Maxxis minion DH
I don't exactly fancy buying new tyres but will if I have too. I use the Kenda's for touring with the lady during the summer. The maxxis were minion front and HR rear for Rostrevor DH tracks and I have not used the Conti's yet as I took them off the day the bike arrived.
Any opinions front and rear from these or your ideal tyre for our type of climate?
