    26 x 3" Knards

    Hopefully this means they are going to make them available to the public!

    Mentioned in today's blog post:

    So would that probably measure out to be 28" like a certain trendy wheel size?

    Sounds like some good summer fun.

    Why use 3" knards when you can use 3.8? Does not compute.

    I don't know that your wife would appreciate her knick-name.

    My "troll" prefers the feel of a larger diameter than 3".

    Methinks 26x3 would be about Max for a troll with clearance. I shaved the Vbrake mounts for good measure. Have watch the chainline as well.

    What's the biggest you've ever stuffed in your troll. If only I had such big meats to test

    This IS the Fat Bike forum. I, for one, would not even glance in these tires' general direction if they were 2.9".

    well give me the evil look then because I like the 2.7 too! Unless that was sarcasm?

    People with multiple bikes won't be drawn to them as much as those like myself that want to get the most out of their fat bike. I just like options that don't require wheel changes. That and I have thoughts of summer front squish with conventional forks for my fatty.

    Sarcasm is but one of the many services we offer here at SmooveP Industries. This was an example of the lighthearted variety.

    But seriously, I would jump on a pair of these, but (also seriously) only if they're 3". Anything less would almost certainly require a smallish rim, say 50mm or less, to get a nice round tire profile. I'd hope I could get away with my Marge Lites.

    I'm running 50s on my old school fatty

    I know we're not alone. Been hearing people ask for 3" rubber since this forum started up

    I'd lace up a set of wheels with 47s (or something similar) if I had to. I have a spare fat wheelset I could use. I'll eventually get around to test riding a Krampus at some point for another perspective on a 3" tire. Have you ridden one?
