I hated the El Gato, just because it pinched flatted so much, how ever smoother riders such as the Theolonious monk loved that tire for a long time. I think there's a lot of better tires out there.....
So it might be slightly overkill, durability is good. I would go with the michelin 24.1 or 16 soft myself. Maxxix Minion dh seems pretty awesome too in slow reezay. Intense tire would work fine though. I don't think they're nearly as sticky though.oicdn said:Alright, cause I was looking at an Intense 2.35 with Intense Tube and it's 2027 grams. But it's pretty much pinchflat proof as I've landed on curb edges on LOW psi and still rode home....I'm just trying to get to the spot that will do, I'm scared the Intense are un-needed weight/overkill.
no. well unless you love pinchflats and sliding around like your riding on ice.killjoy said:use tioga factory dh2.3
