    The IRD Fire XC Pro tires are available now, as are the Schwalbe Racing Ralphs.

    Fwiw, the pre-production samples of my 2.1" Neo-Moto will be landing sometime in March with production landing shortly after that.

    Damn...I've either been asleep or imbibing too much tequilla. I totally missed that you were coming out with 2.1 Neo. I think that's the rear tire I've been waiting for. I was only paying attention to the new Quasi.

    will any of these pre-production samples be available for purchase? I have a 5 day Utah trip planned for the beginning of April where some serious mileage is guaranteed and a 2.1 out back would be perfect

    It was asked: Where are all the new 650b mtb tires?

    I have three new tires sitting in my garage, just waiting for my wheels to laced up.

    With a lefty hub to boot.

    Nah, I just figured nobody local would have 'em so while I was ordering I thought I better get myself a spare.

    Actually not hijack this thread more than I have already, steve the builder of Coconino Cycles built himself a tricycle armbike. He is building some really kewl custom frames, and I bet he'd love to build up a 650B.

    Hey your right. Here's a link to blog entry on the build. I take a peak at his bloggy once in a while, but somehow this one flew under the radar. Prolly because I didn't have a clue what 650B was.

    Have your LBS call Merry Sales Co. in San Fransisco, they have the tires in stock.

    Thanks MMcG. I couldn't find them on the website but sent them an email request for the info. With any luck I can complete my project with my favorite Southern Utah tire combo!

    I ran that combo all last summer on a Carver Bumblebee demo bike and it worked fantastic! Good luck.
