    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.

    So when are translucent tires going to come out? I want some so when I go tubeless it'll look like I'm floating on air

    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.

    Please excuse my ignorance. Never seen anything like it. Helmet looks airy and vegetation looks like warm climate. Please do tell more about the helmet.

    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.

    My Fatboy is black with red accents - my wife was trying to convince me to go pink - I told her I wasn't a good enough rider to pull that off.

    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.

    Is there anywhere in the US you purchase these tires? I want a Green and Orange one. It's for winter riding.
