I guess it depends on the weight of the rider as well. A heavier rider (like me) will be more likely to need the cushioning of a 3" tire than a lighter one. I keep reading opinions of 14 or 16 year olds about tire volumes but mostly they simply don't apply to riders (like me) weighing almost 160 pounds...

Maybe I should lose some weight though, it would definitely improve my poor hopping height...

Anyways, I really enjoy this thread. Keep the reviews coming! I don't have much more to say about muni tires. I'm happy with the 3" Gazz on my 24" and 26", but since they are discontinued I am looking for alternatives now.
