    Default 24" MTB tyre

    Hi Looking to replace the tyre on my son's Giant xtc JR 24 disc. We ride Youies, lysterfield, Wombat and Forrest.
    Finding it hard to find a decent tyre for a decent price that's actually in stock.
    Found these on CRC and before I pull the pin on them thought I'd ask around here.Schwalbe Black Jack 24 x 2.1.

    Would much appreciate your input. Cheers.

    This is one of my favourite tyres:

    Rolls fast, hooks up really well, good on/off road (which kids tend to need), durable, well priced.

    Your LBS should be able to get in Schwalbe Black Jack 24x2.1 for about $35 an end. Nice big bag, cheap and good grip and longevity.

    Ordered the Schwable Black Jack 24x2.1 on Monday night from CRC. Arrived this morning. Really nice tyre. Worked out at $20.50 per tyre shipped which was just too hard to resist so I got two.
    I'll let you guys know how they perform.
    Thanks for all the input.
