- I've put it through the wringer
- Runs small
I just got done mounting these (which was a battle as they are tight but that's not that unusual and they seated with just a floor pump which is nice), and am disappointed at the width of these. I mounted the tire on my rear EX511 rim with an inner width of 30mm. The tire inflated to a measly 2.2 inches wide at 35 psi. That's even smaller than a Maxxis 2.4 and I thought they were some of the narrowest around. Given the effort to mount these, I'll likely run them for a while and see how they do. I have a 2.6 Honcho in the light&supple casing on the front which comes out to about 2..45 on the same rim. The thread profile on these look good and they should serve well in that regard. Depending on performance, I may eventually order a 2.6 for the rear as well, now that I know how small these are.. Otherwise I'll be going back to 2.5/2.6 Maxxis and stick with what works. Update: after a good shakedown ride on varied (but mostly mellower) terrain, I'm pretty impressed with the performance of this tire. Good traction, rolls fast, and feels supple giving a pretty smooth ride (mounted on a hardtail with a CushCore insert and running 18-20 psi rear, 22-24 front). I'm definitely bummed about the width being a letdown but given the performance, I'll likely order a 2.6 to mount on the rear. Update 07/10 - have returned the 2.4 width and running a 2.6 width on the rear now. Really hits the sweet spot in that size, probably my favorite summer/dry tire so far. Rolls well and provides great traction where needed, especially at lower pressure and running a CushCore insert. Very pleased with these, all around great tire (still minus one star however for running narrow).

How true does this measure to 2.6? I would like to put them on my Chameleon 29er, which will fit "some" 2.6 tires.
