      I’m riding a 2009 Trek 4300 with a 2.35 Bontrager XR4 up front and a 2.2 Specialized Purgatory Control in the back.  Riding mostly in the desert. Rocky and sandy.  Any thoughts on my setup?

      I’ve never ridden the Bontrager, but I’m a big fan of the Big S line.  Purgatory is a great tire, and it sets up tubeless in a snap.  I’m on a Butcher / Ground Control, and it’s great for Northern Utah riding.  I’ve ridden the Kokopelli with this set up and have never had a problem.  I use the grid line (thicker sidewall) to reduce sidewall cuts.
