    Old enough to know better. And old enough not to care. Best age to be.

    Hmm that 2.2 Cougar looks like a good candidate for my future rear tire.

    Have you guys tried these? I used them in 26er and they were awesome!!! Not light but really good rubber and pretty smart designs.

    Curious on the actual weight on the Cougar 2.2?

    Thanks,

    Front tire mounted according to instructions. I know, it looks backwards. First ride today.

    Best 650b tire I've tried. Truly phenomenal. Cornering transition A, Cornering Grip, A, Braking... awesome. Rolling... pretty good.
