    Hutchinson Cobra 29x2.25 Tubeless Hardskin?

    Anyone ride 'em? How ya like 'em? Just installed them on Flows tonight and won't have time to try 'em till tomorrow. I'm wondering how they are on hardpack as that's what I mostly ride.

    It was a last minute decision as the Geax Saguaro TNT's I had bought couple weeks ago just didn't want to go on the Flows and it was just a PITA to try to mount it. Saguaros are nice but just not worth the aggravation. The Cobras went on in less than 10mins.

    By the way...TNT Saguaros will fit Stan's rims for 2013...Geax relaxed the bead specs a bit.

    I have them on my bike and I like them. I only got a couple rides in before the leaves fell but they performed great on hard dry trails.

    I must've bought an older version. There was no way I was getting mine on without a tire iron for cars. Even when I was using them tubed on WTB wheels they were a pita to mount but not as bad as on the Flows. Great tires but the mounting hassle is a turnoff. Might try converting the regular folding version Saguaros next time after I wear out the Cobras.

    Easy tubeless mounting on stock Giant wheel. No issues, roll well on the hardpack and running them on the rear @ 28psi. The tire has held up good in the rocky stuff too.and provides good traction and have the Toro 2.3 on be front.

    Thanks. Just rode 'em today and they are awesome tires! Rolls fast, relatively light, and grippy. I can't complain.
