    Cr@p, 11pm mountain time might mean I missed out too. I guess I'll hope for a package instead an email from Walt...

    Never fear, the Neo-Moto is alive and well.

    I've got plenty in stock and plan to have plenty of the 2.1" Neo-Motos' here soon too. The Quasi's should be back in stock in March-April.

    QBP as all my other distributors by them direct from Japan as needed, they don't get them through me. I just didn't order mine in time to have more here before I sold out...who'd of thought you could sell 500 tires in so few months?

    No, the 2.1" Neo-Moto doesn't exist yet. The mold is being made as I write this. The samples should be ready in time for the Taipei show in March. I should have production parts sometime after that...

    Is it true that the 2.3 Neo is going to get lighter?

    How big is the Quasi again? How would it compare to the 2.1 Neo in terms of weight cush etc?

    No, the 2.3" Neo-Moto will not be getting any lighter.

    The Quasi-Moto is a 2.0" XC race tire.

    All 3 tires will share the same 52mm casing, therefor have the same volume, or "cush".

    The 2.1" Neo-Moto should be in the 600g weight range.

    I must has confused a posting I saw. I bet it meant the Neo was going to be lighter, because it will be a 2.1...

    All the same cush huh? Interesting. Maybe a 2.1 Neo on the rear would be okay as long as it has the same cush...

    P.S. I currently have 6 650B tires, only 2 wheels, and I only use a rear at the moment. I guess I don't really need a new tire for a while anyway...

    Neo Moto...

    Kirk... would you ever consider a softer rubber compound on the Neo Moto to aid in wet conditions grip? Something like the Rampage compound?

    I love the Neo, but in the wet the rubber compound is too hard and slides like crazy on the wet surfaces. This is my only complaint with the tire.
    If you used a softer rubber compound it would be perfect, imo..

    It is inevitable ...

    with a name like Rainman you would be asking for a tire for wet conditions, wouldn't you.
    Hey, for the sugar sand I have on my local trails, the Neo works great.

    Oh man, 2.1 Neo's are exactly what I need for my upcoming Curtlo--they're even going to become available around when my frame should be done! I'll take three, please!

    Honest question here for SteveF and anybody else...

    What going to be so much better about the 2.1? Or when would the 2.1 be better than the 2.3 (which I think is great)?

    lower weight, but still a good bite. More fit on more 26er frames.

    as CH said lighter weight, which would spin up easier/quicker and produce less rolling resistance. so a good hardpack tire
