    Maxxis Locust or Larsen Mimo for muddy Course?

    So? I'm waiting to put these on for a muddy race tomorrow. Which ones would you use? The Mimo's or the Locust's? Supposedly the Larsen's are better for mud, but my teammate said he slipped a lot in the mud last week. I was not racin' last weekend

    Boy I really like these Mimo tires from Maxxis--I'm using them as training tires and they have a nice round profile, the knobs are deep enough and they break loose nice and predictable--They seem decent in the mud and will run OK with some air taken out, but they are still clinchers. I'm really happy with these.

    I raced on Mimo's all last year in the Oregon Crosscrusade Series. We had our fair share of dry and muddy races. The Mimo's worked great. They cleared mud fine. I chose them because the tread seem to most resemble a traditional tubular cross tire. Better than Michelin Mud 2 IMHO. This year I'm riding on tubulars and the difference is much better than I anticipated. Of course I haven't flatted yet either. . .

    The Mimos will definately shed mud better. They are a really nice tire, my new training tire/pit wheel choice.

    I personally think the Mimos stink at traction. Go for some michelin muds
