I've demoed a Cannondale Bad Habit with 3.0 tires and wasn't a fan at all of the feel of the plus size. I have yet to try the 2.6 though and will...

My local bike mechanic basically echoed exactly what you said. According to him, a 2.8 tire has a better and more direct feel then a 3.0.  I’ve heard this more than a...

That's an inexpensive way to go too. I'll geek out on those as well. :-)

Definitely a combo I'd consider. The Minion is everyone's overall favourite. Have you ridden any Bontys?

Good points all around! My buddy has Minions on his bike and I've demoed them on another. They are the grippiest I've tried and rolled better than I thought.

Yes I’ve considered a 2.6 tire as well but again, wanted to still roll nice and fast and not add 160 grams of rotation light per wheel. You’re right about the Fuel:...

My '17 Trek Fuel EX 29er came with Nobby Nic 2.35" rubber in the SpeedGrip compound. I love the low rolling-resistance, lightweight and overall feel but I've had a few scary moments...
 
That's great and he's good rider! It just goes to show that you are in control of your own destiny. Inspiring.

Yes that may be true. My buddy got a brand new TRS 9-46 for a used price so it was worth taking the plunge. He spent the $40 or so on a...

Were the 2 GX derailleurs toasted because of the 9-46?

Again, the reason you went with the TRS was to increase the range without having to replace your entire drivetrain. I picked up a screaming deal in the fall on a lightly-used...

Really great advice here once again. You don’t really know how things stack up in the real world until you’ve experienced a demo or owned a piece of gear over the long...

Those are all great points. I’ve already got a 32t chainring up front which I think would work well for gear ratios with the 9-46. I would want to go with a...

Actually the 9-46 only works with the SRAM XD driver equipped hub. The 12 speed upgrade is actually sold as a kit from e*thirteen and includes a 12 speed cassette, chain and...

I am thinking about upgrading from a SRAM 10-42 GX cassette to an e*thirteen TRS 9-46. I love the idea of the extra 1x range on my 29er but I'm not entirely...
Wow great response man. My buddy has Ardents on his Rocky Mountain: I tried them an they were WAY grippier then my Michelin Wild Grip'R in slick dirt. Weird because the tread...
Does anyone have any experience with either of these in wet fall conditions on trails?
