I know you said 2.0 but my Kenda Blue Groove/Nevegal combo come in quite narrow in 2.1 flavour. Superb allrounders as well.

The advantage of tubeless is the puncture resistance, ability to run low pressures without pinch flats.

Don't knock it until you have tried it!

Maxxis Larsens, they come in 1.9, 2.0 and 2.35.
Brilliant all round tyre, I use them for everything from XC to DH. Also all my riding with them and never once punctured. I was out riding in heavy mud last week and they were great, never bogged up. Also very fast in the dry.

No.
Mate is building them up. Save me 4 oz These will be good weather wheels and wear the Maxxis 310 boots.

My 'proper' rubber will be fitted to the Mavic rims
