    Where's "here?"

    Kirk, looks like you opted out of adding more transitional knobs. Good for us with bald Neos...

    Cheers,

    Mike

    Just heard back from the folks at Pacenti / Bikelugs, these won't be available until the end of 2013 or beginning of 2014. Bummer.

    Is not the 2.4 Trail Taker the commercial incarnation of the original Mega Moto design? (with more transition knobs)

    Mega Moto missed the boat. Too many other great tires (read: Dampf) out now.

    Not sure, SH...the transition knobs were inferred to be a hold up at one point, so whether or not the MM has them, it's either tardy or caters to better technique than I have.

    What's up with all the Damph hype? As a rear tire they work all right. The sidewalls slice in sharp rocks like any other mid weight tire. The snake skin burly sidewalls are hype. As a front tire they just don't hook up compared to the antiquated Nevegal.

    Ssshhhh....

    Don't let my Nevegals know they are antiquated. They may quit being such a great front tire.

    At the right pressure, run tubeless on a wide rim, they don't slip, I've never torn one (up front), and are super cheap. Rolling resistance from the front tire is not a big deal. Why bother with tires costing twice as much?

    ??? The HD is a far superior cornering tire to the Nevegal, I'm not convinced the Nevegal even does hook up. But then again I'm used to DHF's and High Roller's, to which the HD doesn't even compare.

    Of course it could be your dirt too, I only ride on leaf covered brown ice

    I know of this leaf covered ice. Hardpan with loose on top was hating the HD. Riding technical with lots of smooth rocks the front was glancing off the rocks instead of tracking. I hear a fair number of Tahoe riders like the Nevegal 2.5 single ply. It works great for me!

    Yes it is, and Vee Rubber owned the molds for this original design which Kirk had abandoned because he wasn't totally happy with the tire. He is currently working with another tire vendor to come out with a better Mega-Moto that will suit his picky requirements.
