So I was wondering how many of you XC racers out there have used a Schwalbe Thunder Burt as a front tire? I’ve used the Racing Ralph’s as my go to front tire in the past and they work well for just about everything.
My hesitation comes when looking at the side lugs which alternate between a lug which looks only slightly smaller than the side lugs on a Racing Ralph to one that looks like a center lug on the Thunder Burt.
I could easily run Maxxis Aspen front and rear to solve this problem, however the Thunder Burt rolls slightly faster.
Has anyone run across this dilemma, and has anyone tested the the Thunder Burt as a Front, Moreover, is anyone still alive to talk about it?
