    What's cool, at least to me, about Maxxis getting into fat tires, is CST will likely have some more budget friendly options as well (given that CST is the parent company of Maxxis). I run CST Ousters (for wet) and Cheyennes (for dry) on my Fuel EX and am beyond happy with them even though they aren't weight weenie tires. Bang for buck is hard to beat. Now, if Maxxis/CST do this with fat tires, we'll probably have some really good options across a few price ranges.

    so is Brant taking that pic just 'cause, or is he taking shots of a 29+ because On One could have a new model that would require them?

    Maxxis makes a wide variety of sand specific ATV & buggy tires... they know what to do. Would be cool if they'd put out a sand specific fat bike tire(s) for us sand-heads...

    Here's what looks to be another angle of the Mammoth from Fartbook:

    Hopefully that link works.

    I'm not sure if I know doodly squat from dudley doright, but this looks like a decent sand tire (when aired down) that will work to ride a short distance on the road to the beach (with more air in it). I'm just not into screaming yellow brand zonking.

    I use black magic markers to obliterate certain brand names, like on closeout sale Cabela's clothing.

    I say the more options the better, but I'm really interested in the Chronicle.

    Re: Maxxis Mammoth fat tyre

    And I thought the Vee Rubber tires had ugly graphics...

    Tread design makes it seem like a good all season tire that will roll decently with that continuous center tread.

    Mmm, look like the Chronicle will give me an excuse to build a wheel using the Velocity Dually 45mm...

    Not the wisest description to use in open forum these days.

    I like the lettering, will match my carbon wheels that are in the pipeline.

    Larry is not my kinda guy either... but he has his place. The Simpson Desert race here in Oz, Larry is popular guy.

    Really soft sand and straight runs between dunes doesn't call for knobs, the winner last year ran black floyds.

    Will be interesting to see how these weigh in, my choice for the race this year so far is semi worn HuDu's, and my spare set of wheels with bald buds.
