    any new/interesting 275 tires seen at interbike?

    275 tires at interbike? in my opinion the only thing holding 275 back right now is the availability of tires (not that there arent any good ones, but would like to see more variety). Curious if anyone saw anything interesting?

    Well, Conti keeps teasing us. I'm interested in trying the trail and x king tires. I want to see more mid weight (lightish and strongish) tires that aren't race tread (RaRa's).
    In the 650-700 gram range with decent sidewall protection. The Nobby Nic is the only one off the top of my head that fits the bill right now. The Ikon looks promising
    as a 650b, but isn't available yet, afaik.

    Yes yes yes....took the words right out of my mouth.

    The Nevegal replacement looks VERY promising to me....

    2.3" 650b Minion DHF was at the show and should be available in a couple weeks. Have one on order and is supposed to be a "true to size" 2.3" 3C compound.

    STOKED!

    Not sure if they were at Interbike, but found this on the Panaracer website. "...27.5 available soon."" Looks like a sweet tire.

    Panaracer is also taking over Pacenti's tire line. I'm hoping they make the Pacentis in other tire sizes. I'd like a 26" Neo-Moto and Quasi-Moto, and we cotharyus want a Neo-Moto in a 29er.

    Those Rock Razors look nice. Pacestar compound with Snakeskin sidewalls under 700 grams. That's the ticket.

    Should make an awesome rear tire for what I ride.

    The RM Altitude I rode at I-bike had the 27.5" Mountain King tires on it. Not sure if they were the 2.4 or 2.2 but they had good volume and hooked up well.

    Try the 2.2 Honey Badger. Bigger than the Ardent 2.25 and even better than the Neomoto. Great tire.

    Yes they have made them. But now they are no longer Pacenti's, they are part of the Panaracer line up.

    Where did you order it from?
    the Maxxis guy I talked to at InterBike said it would be months before they get the new sizes out.
    I'm interested in the wider 650B Ardent and Ikon too.

    I think the Conti's will be worth the wait. Im running the 26" MK and TK and they're the best trail tires I've ever had. They're huge, grippy, and wear great. I also like the Schwalbe's NN and HD a lot. But the NN wears fast.

    Drumroll for the Conti's....

    Man....I know!! My 26" Trail Kings RULE!....bad pun intended!
    Been waiting a while for these! I'm hoping I can nurse along a 4 month old Nevegal and 1.5 month old SS Racing Ralph until the Conti's or new Nevegal-X's come out.

    Come on CONTI!!! SHIP SHIP SHIP!
