    Reviews on new 29er tire, Geax AKA TNT?

    Curious to hear from anybody who has ridden these, especially in desert, how they like them.

    Cheers.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    I have heard rumors that this model will be Geax's next 29"er model.

    I could be mistaken, thought that there was a mention in an Interbike report about the AKA for 29ers.

    I pulled out the '10 Geax catalog before I replied.

    Makes me want to put U-Turn in my netflix queue. Typing that makes me realize just how F-ed up of a word(spelling wise) queue is.

    scene from the movie:

    "Toby N. Tucker: I don't think you know who I am. The name's Toby N. Tucker. People round here call me TNT. You know why?
    Bobby: Because they're not very imaginative?
    Toby N. Tucker: 'Cause I'm just like dynamite, boy, and when I go off, somebody gets hurt. "

    Exactly, the Aka 29er should be the next Geax big tire.

    I'm rooting for a 29er version as well... Spent 150 miles on the 26ers at 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo last weekend (for ~300mi total) and they're the best cornering 'fast' tires I've used. If I do a White Rim trip next month, they'll be the tire to ride, for sure. We've got an initial review up here: http://www.bikefix.net/2010/02/bikef...x-aka-tnt.html

    The Geax AKA is being tested in the 29er size right now. It will be the next 29 inch tire that Geax releases. I have ridden it on a 26" wheeled bike and can say that the 120 tpi casing is extremely supple and makes for a great ride. It is a fast and grippy tire. As soon as it's available in a 29er, I'll have it on my bike!
