    Is it a bad thing that I threw up in my mouth a bit while looking at some of the photos but kind of liked it?

    Yes, it's a bad thing that you like throwing up in your mouth. You should wait until the 4th or 5th date before you admit that.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I think tan, gray, black, moss green etc. bikes look amazingly boring. I think bikes are FUN and should look fun to ride. Personally, I like bikes that are colorful and full of energy. If I wanted a drab, I'd take up duck hunting. But that's just my opinion and realize that others might not feel the same way. That's why bikes come in all shapes, colors, and sizes. Something for everyone. I'll be getting some of these colorful tires soon.

    I just weighed an orange one at 1722 grams and a black came in at 1466 grams. So a 256 gram penalty for a bit of colour. Both are new.

    I did weighed it on my scale, the coloured ones at 1700grams and the black is at 1400grams. About 300grams different. So if you install both, the bike gonna weight 600grams heavier and it's quite substantial. But the coloured tires got a thicker side wall protection than the blacks and looks like it can last longer.

    Ow my eyes. They are more orange than they look in this picture, but I think I need to get a new rim strip. They set up tubeless without too much trouble. I had to wrap a strap around the tire to get the bead to seat, but it wasn't too bad.

    I just realized I can either buy one folding 120tpi Nate for $150, or I can get two Floaters for $110, shipped from the UK.... wait, what???

    Anyone know if they're going to make something in the 5" range?

    How did I not know these existed? I had some of the Onza Porcupines in White back in the, hmm late 80 early 90's and now i need some colored fat. Though my wife would stop riding with me if did I think. She already rolls her eyes at me for my lack of concern about my riding kits matching and my bike set up. Colored tires might push her over the top but man these are awesome!

    Kudos to those of you that have embraced your freak flag and let it fly mightly!

    I have my orange Floaters set up tubeless on Specialized rims on my Fatboy. They work great and once I got the split tube in place they are holding air great.

    Today I went to add some more Stans and I aired them down. The sidewalls on these tires are pretty thick, when I got the air out of them the beads pulled away from the bead seat in the rim. I had black Floaters and Ground Control tires and neither of those pulled back from the seat like this when they didn't have air in them. Its not that big of a deal to me, but I'm not sure how well they will work tubeless at lower pressures.

    No, there is a good channel for the bead to sit in, no foam was necessary. I had one ride with a burping issue - I rode on soft-ish snow and had let a lot of air out, I was probably running at 3-4PSI it was fine on snow, but the bottom end of the ride had no snow and I burped air out. I was able to reinflate it with my backpack pump.

    Only a 2 rides on these bad boys. MAJOR improvement over Vee Mission and Origin 8 Devista8ter tires!

    very nice grip in the corners. Good traction. Reasonable weight for the price. And, most importantly, it doesn't feel like there is a 5 pound ball bearing rolling around in the front tire! No more self-steer.

    Yes, and they look rad....as in getting ready to break the ice rad.

    Has anyone who is running these tires noticed any cracks in the sidewalls? Last night I noticed that both my front and rear tires look almost like they have dry rot on them - those kind of cracks - they are very fine cracks - impossible to photograph.

    Other than that, the wear on the knobs seems to be pretty good so far. I only expected to get a single summer out of them, hopefully these cracks don't develop into something more significant.

    I'm trying to imagine my purple Pugsley with one of these colors. I just can't wrap my mind around it. Anybody got an example yet?

    My daughter might like the pink and purple combination, I'm just not sure I am "man enough" for it.

    Are they uniformly occurring in a somewhat radial pattern out from the rim?
    Many people get this when the tires are run at low pressures for long periods. Endomorph was classic for this. I've got them in my rear Nate, but you only notice them when weight is on the tire.

    Has anyone found that their Floaters are out of round? I got a pair of green ones and they both have a "high" spot that can be seen while looking at the spinning tire from the side or back when eyed against a spot on the seatstays or fork. I have them set up with tubes on Marge Lites. The amount of pressure in the tire doesn't appear to make any difference. I can feel the bounce as well - when I'm on a smooth trail or the road. When the front and rear are out of sync my bike does a little rocking horse type movement. Weird.
    There isn't a bubbled area or visibly distorted area - just a 5 or 6 inch section of the tire is a quarter inch higher than the rest.

    Huh. Well, I've never had that happen before, but I guess I'll de-tubeify them and see. I was thinking if I had to send them back it'd be a pain to clean them up from the sealant - but it sounds like that'll be what I need to do to get to the bottom of it. I wanted to make them tubeless anyway to if that cures it - whoopee!

    You have not said if the tire beads are seated correctly or not.
    Also try rotating the tire 90 degrees on the rim and reinflating.

    I sometimes get flat spots when I use 2.7 to 3.5 inner tubes. The innertubes will sometime not expand properly where they are reinforced (often around the valve) creating the flat spot.

    ok, i'm thinking real hard about these. first of all, i currently have Nates, which i know are great tires. it would seem sinful to take them off, but i REALLY want the white floaters!

    couple questions, is the rubber tacky? i've heard that colored rubber can have grip issues, and i dont want to get a tire thats going to kill me in wet conditions. I ride both snow and dirt

    also, how much dirt sticks to them? i realize they will get dirty, but i want white tires (some dirt is expected) not tan tires

    Base on my experienced riding dirt trails. Slippery on roots when wet.

    To give you my perspective - I have run 4 different kinds of tires - Vee Missions, Specialized Ground Controls, black Floaters and orange Floaters. I ride often with a guy who runs Nates.

    I would say that the Nates have slightly better traction than the Floaters, I have only noticed that on snow rides, in dirt both provide plenty of traction. I don't know for sure, but I would expect that the Floaters would have less rolling resistance than the Nates - just based on the tread pattern. I don't notice much of a difference between the black and orange Floaters, but there was such a time spread between owning those two that my opinion is not worth much there. Even though its not part of your question - the Ground Control tires have better traction than both of those tires in snow.

    My orange tires shed dirt pretty well and are not stained by the dirt at all. Of course if you run through mud some will stick for a bit, but once that dirt falls off the tires are back to being orange, they are not muddy-orange.

    Here is a picture from last night, I've had these on my bike for 2-3 months and get ridden in the dirt at least 2x per week over that period:


    Hope that helps.

    Nice i know the old school colored rubber (from what i've heard anyway) can feel like slippery plastic on wet because they lack some sort of ingredient that the black tires have. I get that the traction would be a bit less because of the knobs. I was going to sell my nates to easily pay for the floaters, but maybe i'll hold onto them once i see how i like my floaters. i'm worried less about the knobs, and more about the rubber quality i guess.

    The sidewalls on the orange Floater is definitely thicker than the sidewall on the black ones (they're heavier too). I can't speak to the hardness of the rubber.

    I've been running the white floaters.



    They grip well in the conditions I've tried them out in so far (dry single track). They roll better than Nates. You're not going to beat Nates in wet conditions traction, though. Horses for courses.

    You folks are worried about dirt making your tires look... um... dirty?

    They have discounted the Pinkies down to $34 and the white/orange/green still $54... any wonder they sell like hot-cakes. $100 order and they send to oz for free, na i'll fleece myself and spend $150+ shipping on a single HuDu.

    Thinking seriously about running these or veerubba's as everyday tyres,

    I was also considering the Vee Rubber Mission's (also available in a plethora of colors) but the reviews weren't as favorable as those for the Floaters. The price is pretty hard to beat on either tire.

    I noticed the Vee Rubber's too. I'm just not as sure about the Mission's as they have more mixed reviews than the Floaters.

    FWIW, I'm building a year-round rig, so I'll be riding dusty double-track, as well as (hopefully) snow.

    Edit: I just got word back from Plantet X that they don't have any dates on when the Orange ones will be back in.

    So it looks like I'll be stuck with Missions or one of those 'black' tires.

    I tried my Orange Floaters on the Moonlander back in April. forgot to post them up!. Having a higher side wall than my Surly 4" tyres they fit ok and the 100mm rim is not too exposed.

    13th April; On One Floater tyres on Moonlander 100mm rims 001 by coastkid71, on Flickr

    13th April; On One Floater tyres on Moonlander 100mm rims 007 by coastkid71, on Flickr

    The bike rides nice on regular trails with these tyres, not squirmy like with the BFL`s. but not very good in real soft sand due to the firmer side wall, that is ok though as this set up allows the Moonie to turn it`s hand alonside my Nate shod Pugs as a trail fatbike

    how are you guys getting free shipping? i'm trying to get a pair of the whites, but when i go to check out it adds a 25# shipping charge. the order is over the 60# minimum and i don't think a 120tpi folding tire would qualify as a bulky item. anybody know a way around this?

    Black rubber compounds always have better grip than colored rubber because if the use of carbon black. Especially shows up in the wet.

    I just tried and clicking on the "free worldwise shipping" notice at the top, details say for "Channel Islands, Europe & International: Free on all Orders over £100". Team up with someone to order two pair?

    White is back in stock, along with green & pink.

    And it was 9.99 GBP for shipping one tire to the U.S..
    The other kind of "Clownshoe" now available.

    Now $24.99 GBP for two tires to the U.S..
    Perhaps they're with a new shipper?

    Probably both. The tread on a Nate is much more aggressive than a Floater. The compound may make a difference as well.

    I bought 3 sets of white Floaters because they were cheap, and are a good compromise between rolling and traction for summer trails. When the snow falls, Nates go back on.

    They seem to be wearing at a normal rate. The trails that I ride destroy tires in short order, that's why I jumped on these.

    Correct Shiggy, I can still get free shipping to Oz on orders over $100 (60 pounds), done by adding 2 hydration packs that triggered free shipping.

    Added 2 floater tyres, shipping was displayed at $34, deleted 2 hydration packs, shipping still $34.

    Looks like they have realised the bulky tyres are expensive to ship.

    And a complete Fatty is now almost $400 for shipping to Australia. From memory this was about $100 when I bought mine 18 moths ago.

    It looks like all shipping prices have risen considerably.

    Its now displaying DHL as the courier company too... this is a good thing rather then TNT-Post and an additional 4 week delay while doing customs paperwork. Dont know if its worth the $149 to $391 price hike though.

    Dont know Nic, try adding something small (hydration pack or jersey) then take the tyres out of your basket making sure you are still over 60 quid, if it comes up with free shipping then its the fat tyres that are triggering the shipping cost.

    I would also email them back and question the new shipping cost.

    Colored On One Floaters

    During the weekend, I tried to order a couple of black Floaters from the UK On-One site to be shipped to Finland, but it wouldn't give me free shipping, even though order total was above the minimum. It would, however, let me have free delivery on 2 coloured Floaters, so presumably something about the shipping-restrictions metadata for the black variant of the product was not right. Tried again on Monday and was able to get free shipping. Had also mailed On-One in the meantime, but the reply just stated that 'now it seems to work'.

    Well that was interesting.

    Earlier tonight, after the 60 vs. 100 GBP threshold, steve1324 posted to use the On-One site. So I went to the On-One site, and for the coloured Floaters (folding tires) I automatically got the free-shipping (to the U.S.) once the order was over 60 GBP (two tires would do that), as their policy states.

    Just now to confirm, with the On-One policy still saying the threshold is 60 GBP, with the U.S. as the destination: three tires at 99.99 GBP had the 24.99 GBP shipping charge; four tires got free shipping. This was with coloured floaters, so folding tires. While in the basket for checkout, I can change the number of tires and watch the total go below/above 100 GBP and see the shipping charge come or go.

    Looks like they're in the middle of changing the threshold?
    Maybe we're getting some interference between cookies or other browser stuff between the two sites?

    Update: just ran CCleaner to clear cookies, etc.. On-One site: same as the later result - free shipping to U.S. once over 100 GBP, for coloured Floaters, a folding tire.
    Given this and shiggy's '10 tires without free shipping', looks like they're in the middle of changing some things, intentionally or otherwise.
    Wonder if it's the same guys maintaining both sites and someone had a finger slip...

    Ah ha!!!
    Used the online form for Customer Service on the On-One site to ask what's up with the free shipping threshold policy of 60 GBP vs. orders requiring 100 GBP. Got an auto-reply from planetx.co.uk...

    well considering i emailed on-one, and they wrote me back (saying it was a big box, hence the shipping charge) i got to assume it's true. still not matching your guy's experience though. Maybe i'll wait a bit until i can get a real answer.

    I think it is the bulk AND the weight. The pair (2) I received completely filled a box that originally held 20 (twenty) 700x23 road tires. Weighed around 4 kilos. Pretty dense for the volume.

    Played a bit with the shopping cart. Added "normal" components until I received free shipping to the US. Then added a Floater. Charged the same shipping amount as if it was just the tire alone.
