    Use on the front in 2.35guise. I like them.

    Love em. Can't go wrong on the front – fantastic predictable grip. Poss a bit draggy on the back for all but the muddiest conditions – I'd go with an Advantage/High roller on the rear personally.

    I have a single ply DHF super tacky 2.35 on the front, quality tire, especially on wet roots

    Got an Ardent 2.25 on the back

    Use it in 2.5 super tacky mode on me big bike. Works a treat but wouldn't want to pedal it up or along far!

    2.35 single ply supertacky for "big" trail riding, 2.5 twin ply for DH.

    Good kit.

    I have the super tacky 2.35 minion. I think they come up pretty normal, a toucher bigger than my 2.25 panaracers – so about right.

    I have both 60a and 42a minion f and r tyres on two different full sus bikes, get the 42a if you can, very good in corners but a total git on tarmac

    Ive just ordered a 2.35 High Roller semi slick for summer!!! Should be good.

    how do the ardent 2.25 compare in size to the minion 2.35?

    Roughly the same size, maybe even a smidgeon larger. I run a Minion DHF 2.35 on the front and an Ardent 2.25 at the moment and it seems like a decent all-round combo for an average sort of rider like me.

    I use a 2.35 single ply Minion on the front-2.35 High Roller on the rear
    Great tyre but its narrower than the High Roller.

    On the DH bike yes. Not on a bike that has to climb though.

    Corners really well & is 'fast' but the lack of horizontal tread blocks mean that they don't brake as well as a High Roller (maybe this is why they feel fast).
