    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:

    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.

    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.

    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.

    While I get the resemblance to larry, that tire is a world away from him and looks way more aggressive!

    Mammoth looks like a fat version of Ardent, and I like Ardent. I'll try a pair if the price isn't outrageous.

    I managed to get a pair of pre productions samples of the Mammoth from the local dealer here in Finland: Hi5bikes.

    I have had time to take only one ride on them, so here is a short initial review with pictures: MAXXIS MAMMOTH by Erik Plankton

    First impression: awesome

    ps. Also got a pair of Chronicle 29+ and mounting them soon...

    They should be available by the end of july if production goes smoothly. This is only my secondhand knowledge, nothing confirmed from Maxxis.

    Is there a "Made in..." label on the tires? Curious if Maxxis stepped up and installed new equipment or are farming out the production.

    I have the Chronicles already mounted to Rabbit Holes. The problem is that they are laced to Salsa Fat Conversion hubs that have a different front spacing than the Kona Wo fork. Just ordered a Carver carbon fork, but it will take a week or so for shipping here. I will take pictures though and do a short test ride without the front brake soon.

    Is the rotor too close to, or too far away from, the caliper?

    That is always confusing.

    When I built up my Puffin the rotor was too far from the caliper. Used spacers on the fork mount.

    Just take your spacer to the local machine shop and have them mill 4 mm off where it contacts the fork. Worked great for me and only cost $20.

    Looking for something with better grip on loose (sand) over hardpack than the On-One Floaters which are crap in these conditions.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    I got to see some at Speedway on a demo Fatback in Anchorage. Only feed back from staff at the shop was that they have not made it out of the parking lot much. Thinking about these when the HUDUs get worn out.

    Maxxis Chronicle and Mammoth up on their site!

    ...looks like the new tires are up on the Maxxis site, but you can't browse for them. You gotta have the exact url. Looks like the Chronicle will have an EXO/tubeless ready version! Here ya go!
