    New question here. Maxxis ever make the HR 2.35 DH in a 60a

    Just curious. I am running the HR 2.35 DH in 42a up front, but am not really interested in a tacky rubber out back during the warmer months.

    Not currently. There is no 2.35 maxxpro highroller in the dh casing. There is the 2.35 in standard casing with 60a.

    ***I didn't recall that maxxis offered different casing options/tread compounds overseas. My mistake. ***

    I have one too. Wish they still made them (and the Minion F). Great trail bike tires that are long lasting and have the DH bead for the gnar. They also don't do the red/orange stripe around the tire anymore, which I think gives it some character.
    Biker? I don't even know her.

    It might get a little steep from here

    Thanks for the CR link. Guess I will have to grab it from across the pond.

    I am not a huge fan of the orange stripe either, but it wouldn't stop me from running the tire

    SylentK, they used to do the minion 2.35 in the DH casing? I was wondering why only the HR gets the 2.35 DH casing, maybe just a volume of sales thing. I still haven't figured out why they stopped the 2.35 UST in the 42a, they are great trail tires in the wet season.

    Although CRC is cheaper.

    edit: oops the 2.35 isn't listed as DH.

    Those tires are the standard casing for the 2.35 size.
    Forgot to check the overseas maxxis sizes and casing options. My mistake.

    From Universal, "2.35 si single ply casing"
    I would assume that si is a typo for "is"

    Here's a pic of my Minion. Wish they still made them. 2.5 is a little too big for trail bike, but I'm kinda big and aggressive so I like/need the dual ply DH bead on the 2.35.

    Nice. Yeah, I am in the same boat at about 240lb. Ever since I started riding mtb light tires have been a pain in the rear. Sure, they pedal better. But the rest of the time they are flimsy, squirmy, prone to pinch flatting, etc...

    I have had decent results with the 2.35 Lust and 2.35 UST SuperTacky HR tires over the last year, but I recently got a good deal on some dual ply and found that they are much stiffer casing without really sacrificing ride quality.

    I have had really good luck with these 2.5 single plys wire beadyou can only get them from CRC http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...x?ModelID=5845
    They have the DHR and DHF minion also in the 2.5 they arent the lightest around 900g
    butt have held up very well for me at 240 lbs
    These are the only single ply tire that I have not blown out the sidewalls on
    It might get a little steep from here

    Yep, the 2.5 SP Minions are supposed to be stateside before summer according to the Maxxis guy on the board. One of my friends has been running one from overseas for about 6 months now. I thought he mentioned it being over 1000g, it is a steel bead. If the difference is only ~100g I would rather have the dual ply than the extra .15in width
