Ok, I have read tons of threads and none talk about my type of riding and racing. I race hare scrambles and practice on hill climbs in West Virginia. We have alot of roots, leaves, loose dirt, rocks, creek bottoms, mudd and did I mention mudd. I was thinking about the s-12 or star cross ms-2 but then again I like the bridgestone m-102 or so. I have ran the factory tire so far and it was ok, but not great on the hills and very poor in mudd. I have a race on 4/25 and am looking for input so I can purchase and be ready for that day. Thanks in advance.
