I have never really thought about it but why does everybody run bigger front tires than back. You see people run 21/20, 20/18 and 23,22 tire combos but why not like a 20/20 combo? Does the extra inch up front make much of a difference?

I am curious about this too because I have allways been told to go 1 inch bigger in the front. I myself would like to see the opp set up for my bike that way when I get a stuck I can always back up :)

im told more ground clearance, better cornering, and better straight line handling (apparently smaller tires = twitchy at higher speeds)

no, all the reasons i listed are why they run an inch bigger in the front. FOR more gound clearance. FOR better cornering. FOR better straight line handling
