  • Running a Maxxis Minion Front Tyre on the back?
  • Isn’t that what Hill did / does??
    Think it helps you drift??

    I’ve just ordered 2 rear Minions and going to run one of the rears on the front as I prefer the tread pattern on the rear to the front.

    Minion front works well on the rear. Run the tread the other way round for better traction but fast rolling tyre.

    I’ve got a front 60A 2.35 single ply Minion on the back of my hardtail. Works fine. The tread pattern isn’t a hellofalot different to a high roller.

    Is anyone doing this and how do they find it?

    Apparently the fronts roll much quicker and I thought it might be good for the dry.

    2.35 variety by the way.
