My personal bike got a new rear tire this week. I've been riding Maxxis Minion SS since spring. It rolls really well but has those big Maxxis side knobs that I love for digging into the trail. Unfortunately, as the fall leaves piled up on the trail, the semi-slick center section had me sliding all over.

I swapped to a Maxxis Shorty, with it's bigger, spike style knobs. I rode it today and it definitely cuts through the leaves better and the spikes do a great job digging into the occasional muddy spot on the trail.

I have to say, at this point in my life, its Maxxis or.......Maxxis when it comes to mountain bike tires.
