Narrower tire turns and handles better but you dont get as much traction when conditions are poor. In perfect traction conditions I would go with a 110 rear. If you ride in sloppy stuff I would go with a 120. :cry:

Go with the MaxxCross It from Maxxis. It is far and awayt he most lasting rear tire I have ever used. The trade off for good traction is totally accepable as well.

I like the 120 rear with the new brigestone 90/100-21 front. Great traction and reasonable wear.

I would say that the best value for the western riders is the maxxis IT. That is all I here from the riders out west. I know some fast guys that swear by them. They dont work for us eastern riders and that is why Maxxis has the new SI model for us eastern riders. :cry:
