    Is the black floater the same tire as the coloured ones? Black seems to be 10 dollars more than the coloured?

    The coloured ones are on sale at the moment, black isn't.

    Are the coloured ones wire bead? They seem heavier than the black ones at 1670gm.

    I was about to pull the trigger on some green ones but I'm not willing to cop a ~500gm increase in rotational weight.

    Has anyone weighed them? On One site says they weigh 1670g.

    Colored On One Floaters

    I did not weigh them but they were folded in the box so I don't think they are wire bead.

    Hm. If they're kevlar bead and 120tpi then I can only assume the rubber compound is heavier or there's more of it. I've emailed On One to see what they say.

    On-One site lists the weight of the coloured tires as 1670 but they don't tell us what the black tire weighs? Some info on the web suggests a weight of around 1450 for the black ones but On-One tells me there is no difference between them? That's why I'm asking as something doesn't make sense and On-One was of no help answering my questions. Does anyone have any information on shipping times to BC Canada?

    Fat Bike.com has listed 1481g, 1510g but I just weighed 1 of my black Floaters at 1385g.

    Re: Colored On One Floaters



    It'll be a few days before I get a pair mounted. They aren't light, but the casings feel very supple.

    I'd like to see them make a set of bright blue tires. Bright Red might be cool too.

    Just put mine on my not so accurate fish scale, 1675g.

    Will try the better scale at the shop later in the week, small price to pay for such a novel product IMO. This is going to be my training bike so they will only make me stronger. Sidewalls look beefy and compound seems good and tacky.

    This thread reminds me of the trendy (back then) fluoro tops in the eighties. Abhorrent at first, but strangely starting to attract me for some twisted reason.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    I don't know how I feel about these yet...but I'm afraid of change sometimes.

    A bit off topic, but I'm surprised more companies don't make gum-wall tires. I absolutely love that look.

    Re: Colored On One Floaters







    Bike isn't finished yet, but I got these bad boys mounted up. Letting them stretch out at 30psi. They are on the big side for a 4" tire, they look about as big as BFL on Rolling Darryls.

    Okay - I love white tires... I do no know why... but the green is calling to me from Michelin Wildgripper days!!!

    I have an all black pugs- larrys are getting worn...white and green, green and pink, orange and pink?
    Oh the people I could annoy!!
    My bike is heavier than yours - it does not have Carbon or Titanium parts - I love it!

    The black box around the logos makes my eyes want to throw up, which is ironic. You would think the colors would have that effect on some. Nope, I think these look pretty cool but not paying attention to that detail really diminishes the product to me. Too bad.

    Same here. Otherwise I would have already ordered a set. I wonder if that black can come off somehow, without damaging the tire.

    I think there were some pics floating around of Vee Rubber tires in the same colours. Maybe they are being released soon? Not sure what style of tire it was, but exact same colours. They might have logos to your liking.

    Vee Rubber makes the tires for On-One, it's will be the same rubber pumped into the Mission tire molds.

    A surprise Pennsylvania snow storm Sunday night lead to me being able to test out the Floaters in some left over snow. What a difference in traction over the stock tires.
    With this color scheme, I tend to stand out in the woods. Very happy with the green/white/orange combo.

    Yeah, because you wouldn't want your Mongoose Dolomite with stem on backwards to look tacky

    I would never have picked that myself, but it does look good.

    Not worried about that.
    Besides, once I add the BMX bars to the new, longer & adjustable shiny metal backwards stem, with the brakes reversed left/right, a folded clown horn, the dropback seat post with the old-school comfort seat, no one's ever going to get far enough down the photo to notice the tires...
    Worst case, anyone reaches the wheels and I've got a big shiny metal UFO style dork/spoke protector behind the 14-34T freewheel to distract them.

    For seat choice I've got a comfort seat, an old-school comfort seat or a carbon-fiber shoehorn. For the local bike festival, I'm torn between the old-school and the shoehorn.

    It's a work in progress, on a Mongoose Dolomite. I might post a photo when all of the mods (can't bring myself to call them upgrades...) are done, but I don't want to be liable for anyone's therapy.
