So there is a few new 29er tires coming out this year. They are it seems to be primarily light weight. Great, wonderful for the racer heads.
So what about everyone else? Yes, I'm talking about the rest of us average riders. Guy's and girls who ride through asty rocks and stuff. Yes, we would like to see a few heavier weight tires because not all of us ride groomed race tracks or nice trails. Some of us like to be able to challenge ourselves through rough trail. To rock hop and log hop as we need to on the ride.
How the hell can we do that when we have to worry about whether our tires will survive the ride intact? Come on manufacturer's we want to see some more abuse capable tires.
