Thanks for posting that.  It looks like a good read, which I'll read when I have time to absorb it later today.

This is a great follow-up to the article Schwalbe posted up last year but this time with empirical data. This really just makes sense. When I ordered 2.35's  F/R for my XC bike, the guy thought I was a little crazy (I am crazy but not for ordering the 2.35's)

I don't see a date on the posting, but I think that is actually several years old. NOt saying that invalidates it in any way though.
