I know this must have come up in old topics, but I couldn't find it - anyway, 24.1 on the rear of PX, used for urban trials (with modified rockshox duke for 40mm). Is the 2.5 overkill or just nice and big? The weight diff. is pretty minimal, what do y'all think?
Thanks
PS
Right now riding bald el gato....

I can't imagine needing more tire than the 2.2 to be honest. If you want more air volume to make sure you aren't bottoming out on things, check out the 2.5. You'll probably be happy with whatever you choose.

aye, if your rough as 50-grit, like me, the 2.5 is nice. for smoother riders, the 2.2 does Grrreat i guess. i am looking forward to the weight loss when i become smooth... until then, i havent pinched my rear since ive had my michelin...thats about 5 months running 12 psi.

I've run a michelin 2,2 at the rear for 3-4 months now. Never pinched. I run low pressure(My pump doesn't have a manometer). And I am as far from smooth as you get. I acutally ripped out two spokes on a pedal-up gone bad.

I have had the 2.2 for a few weeks now (coming from Tioga Factory DH 2.3) and I can honestly tell you the difference is huge! Although its a bit thinner (by some ridiculously minute amount) its heaps better.. grips really well and I couldn't ask for more, I run about 22psi. I *may* try a 2.5 next time but its pretty heavy.. like some ppl have already said, 2.2 should be enough.

I remember that...it was Tioga ads on every damn bike magazine back then. Isn't it the same time when Onza was advertised heavily too?
