    bomboloni or chupacabra for 30 euro's more

    Hi,

    I need a new set of tires for my 29+. I can get the bomboloni's for 60 euro's or the chupacabra's for 90. Are the chupa's worth the extra 30 euro?

    thx

    Only you can answer the financial worth, but I'm pleased with my Bomboloni. No flats yet and set up tubeless was a breeze.bomboloni or chupacabra for 30 euro's more-dsc_0547.jpg

    Colin, I have the exact same frame as you and have been thinking of a Bomboloni in the front as well. How has it been for you? What tires can you compare it with? I've ran a 2.4 Ardent and now have the 2.5 DHF on 36mm internal rims. I love the DHF but it's SOOO heavy, I'd save wuite a bit of weight with a Bomboloni.

    I have Bombolonis, tubeless setup was a breeze even on duallys. They remind of Ikons, I have enjoyed them so far but I do not know any other + tires.

    I have a Bombolini in the rear paired with a DW up front. I like the bomboloni, the casing is super plush (in a good way) and tubeless setup no problem. good volume too on a 50mm rim. decent weight.

    my only complaint would be that it packs with mud and gets slick if you get into some deep thick stuff. i prefer a more aggressive tread but there still aren't a lot of options out there for aggressive tread. next time i have the rear tire off, or when i get around to it, i'm going to flip it around backwards and see if it gives better traction?

    "Fully rigid" isn't a thing.

    WTB Ranger is another lower priced alternative.
    Ranger 29x3 (and 27.5)

    What tape did you use on the Duallys? I set up my Bombolinis on a Dually with a single layer of blue tape. Set up ok, but won't hold pressure.

    Thanks!
