    Forté Pisgah 29x2.2 tires

    I just received the pair I ordered from Performance Bike to go on my Arch EX/DT Swiss 350 wheelset I had built.

    Interestingly enough (not a shocker I guess) the claimed weight of 643g each was way lower than the 700/695g I just weighed mine in at.

    Just figured the group might want to know. They price was right though. $58 for the pair to my door.

    Will be mounting them up tubeless before the weekend.

    All mounted up and sealed. They went on easy to the Arch EX rims and I got the bead to pop and seal with only a floor pump.

    Mine was 660grams. Very happy at how the tire worked in bone dry LOOSE over hard pack moondust this summer. Not as fast as my cut Saguaro's , but not a slip in the loose stuff. You might like the Tsali on the rear for more speed. It works well in the 26" version on the back.

    Thanks man. I was thinking about those tires but didn't know they existed until after I had placed my order.

    I run a tsali in the back and a pisgah up front on a hardtail 29er. Nice combo. Using tubes though. No complaints other than they might be just a tad undersized for a 2.2. They work really well though and the price is a bonus!
    I'm looking forward to regretting this.......

    Oh yeah, they definitely seem narrow.

    They need to do the 29" in 2.4.

    I am running this tire on the rear of my 2011 Epic. Replaced my Ground Control which was only good on hardpack. I was sliding w/the GC if it got a little slick out there. I like the tire so far, ran it in a 6hr. race. It's grippy enough for sure. For the price/weight ratio, it's a great value which is right up my alley. Tubeless no prob. I will consider it for the front in the future or possibly the Tsali. Just my 2 cents.
