Hi, I am currently running 2.1" Kenda Nevegals at the moment, but once the weather starts drying up I am thinking of putting a Small-Block 8 type tyre on the back to speed things up a bit. Then in summer I was thinking of chucking the Small-Block on the front, and putting a lo-profile tyre on the back (a WTB Nanoraptor I have kicking about). Et voila - tyres for all seasons. I was just wondering if there are other choices I should be considering instead of the Small Block - particularly from less obvious manufacturers (I am already aware of the Maxxis Larsen).
FYI: I ride recreationally, mainly XC type stuff although I try to sniff out as much technincal stuff as I can find to hone my 'skills'. Terrain is mainly rooty singletrack - not many rocks round here.
