Have you dabbled with these in the same frame ? Do you swap out depending on conditions, or have you ended up sticking with one for most or all of your of your riding? What swayed you?
I'm about to start lacing some wheels, and I'm pausing over those 26+ Dirt Wizards wchich would need a wider rim. Tehre's enough space for one in the current rigid fork. A 35mm rim and fatter tyre would give me about 15-20% more volume, a bigger footprint with the ability to run lower pressure, and add half a kilo to a Crest and current tyre (2.4" X-King).
Half a kilo is more than the difference between the Cromoto and a newish SID, and grip advantage from suspension is going to be ??? compared to grip advantage from 2.75" front, but keeps the advantage of a lighter wheel and a faster tyre.
Seems the choice comes down to Light v. Fun Grip v. Fast Grip? Is that about right?
