    Questions re Vee Rubber Fluid 2.4

    So I just received my new Carbine 275 from Intense and the build kit included Vee Rubber Fluid 2.4 tires. Prior to the bike arriving, I purchased a set of NN 2.35 because I have been running Schwalbe tires for years on both 26ers and 29ers and really like them. Does anyone have experience with the Vee Rubber Fluid? I'm trying to decide whether to try them or just eBay them. If I am going to eBay them, I would rather sell them as new, hence the question.

    So that's what happened to all the Fluids. I haven't seen anyone post them except one guy in Aus a while ago and been waiting for them to become available, Intense must have bought them all up for their builds. Could you post a pic with them inflated so we can see how they really look? Side by side with NN would be nice.

    Here you go

    The Vee Rubber is just slightly taller and slightly wider.

    If you decide to sell them I might be interested. Does the sidewall say anything about the compound, is it the Dual compound version?

    Try them. Never know when you are going to find a new favorite tire.

    Is it just me or do the side knobs look like they are too far on the side? It looks like they are more horizontal than vertical.

    here's side by sides with my HR2 and HD's, it's hard to convince me that this kind of round tire profile would corner better than the squareness of the HR2.

    Agreed. I was surprised by how round the profile is. It is more round then the NN.

    You have great taste as well. I would like to ride a Gas Gas. I hear you on the not enough time to ride. I ride bicycles 4 to 5 times a week, whereas I only ride motos (other than my road bikes) 10 to 12 times a year. Mainly, I do a multi-day trip to Southern Utah in the Spring and a multi-day trip to Central Idaho in the fall. We have great riding close by, but it still takes 4 to 5 hours to do a ride whereas I can ride my mtb from my door before work in the morning (or from the office for lunch).

    I just built a mini-moto track in the back yard for my kids and it is fun to jump on my son's XR 100 and blast the track for a few laps in the evening.

    It's the dual compound version. I'll probably sell them if you are interested.

    I am only interested in one tire since the Fluid is too big for the rear triangle of my conversion but I might find a local friend who would be interested in getting the second one. Give me a moment to figure that out. TIA.

    Weird, I googled vee fluid and here I am looking at the comparison to the nooby nic which I just got on my altitude. Since the very first ride Ive been trying to find a tire to replace the NN. For the type of riding I do the NN tends to wash out in the corners and slip on the climbs also the sidewall is to thin for the type of riding I do. I've been dealing with pinch flats the last two rides First as tubeless, then putting tubes in them, partially because, I haven't had time to patch the tire hence pinch flatting tubes, so far for this week, I've had four flats, running outa tubes. Is the side wall on the V's quite a bit thicker? It's looks from the profile like you could really lay it down in the corners. My only other issue would be slippage when climbing. I'm coming off riding WTB wier wolfs. That was an excellent tire except for the thin sidewalls. I'm riding 650 so the choices are pretty limited.also, the wier wolf was discontinued.

    I rode the fluids for the first time yesterday, I really liked them, better cornering that NN 2.2
    I only rode them on dirt, but my wife said that they felt like someone filled up her tires with cement on the rode. ( needed to do that sooner to slow her down on the preride warm up)
    I have a brand new hanz 2.35 and NN 2.3, but think I'm going to get some Fluids instead
