    Are the Try-all tires sticky and wide enough? They look to be decent tires. At the same time, I am 230 lbs. 5'll". So I use slightly higher are pressure than most people can. So I need some feedback before buying some tires. I already have a Michelin Hot S 2.0 on the front. That tire is sweet. But, I heard the 2.5" red Hot S is weak in the sidewalls (for the rear). Info.....please!

    i love my tryall tyre. insanely grippy and soft. i can up a wall and only half have my tyre on top and it still grips perfectly. bought it a few months ago and it's still going strong and grippy. not a heap of wear so far.

    tyre is tricky to get off the rim though.

    230 lbs....heh....I have an Intense tire that would love a heavy weight person...$20 + shipping and it's yours.... My light 150 lb ass, it's like riding on a solid rubber rin around a rim it's so stiff...but yeah, the 24.1 is the best tire ever. Comp 16 is pretty sick, well judging by the "comp 16" I'm running. Hell, buy my Intense for $20, and get the Michelin....when one runs out, you'll ahve the Intense till a new Michie gets there....

    Also, judging by your post, it l;ooks like you're thinkin about getting a 24.1 for the front...NO... 24.1 just the rear...unless that is, you WANT the weight....

    I 2nd that no on the 24.1 on the front. Do you really need a 3 1/2 pound tire on the front of your bike?

    Now a 3 pound tire, thats totally different.

    The try-all tire is great, and it has good pinch resistance. I haven't flatted mine yet.

    Try Alls are grippy, but foldy. Michelins seem to be the way to go. Good pinch resistance, grippy and doesn't fold all over the place at lower psi's like a Try All will.
