i really like the looks of the tread on that Aggressor. Wondering if this DHR I have would make a good FRONT w/that Aggressor on the rear? I've noticed several riders saying they like the DHR on the front too.

I dunno. I typically think of the DHR on the back. The aggressor never really loses grip unless I do a slushy or something

Well I just got the DHR2 on there. Took it for the quick test ride hoppin' curbs around the block, feels good and holding pressure with my new Stan's orange valves too.

It's funny, it's actually SLIGHTLY more narrow than spec', more like a 2.5, which is desirable. My Butcher up front is clearly a 2.6. I'll be going for a short solo ride in the woods tomorrow and I'll know for sure, but it actually felt like an improvement even just around here on the pavement--can't really tell that way though. If it works out well after a few rides maybe I'll consider just going for the DHF on the front.

I wish there was a proven way to take the darts out and truly patch that Purgatory w/some rubber from the inside enough to hold pressure. I'd rather NOT have to put a tube in it if I want to use it again for any reason.

What's peoples opinion on Assegai vs DHF? I've had both but somewhat far apart. Feel like the assegais draggier?

Can anyone recommend a front tire for dry Northern Utah riding? Both hard pack or loose sand / dirt conditions, considering the assegai, DHF, DHRII, or any cheaper other brands that compare?

Well I got a DHR2 (29r) when needed an immediate replacement, love the tire. I went by default I guess to the Assegai WT up front. Have it on a 30mm rim though but to be honest I like it way more than I even thought I would. Wanted to go to 2.4, ended up they had only 2.6, but no issues, and it really works well with different pressure. I run it a tad bit higher (closer to 30) when riding smoother dirt paths xc type riding, and go down a few PSI (around 25ish or under) when out on the nasty stuff in the woods, climbing, going downhill over rocks, roots, loose over hard stuff. Steering on the techy stuff improved. Love the tire.

Depends on your riding of course, right, but I thought I was convinced the DHF wouldn't roll as quick on the lesser tech stuff so that may be why I went w/the Assegai as well. Even rides good on places I've been that have pavement, doesn't feel like it's dragging or too sticky really.
