    New vee tire 4.7 offerings

    When I link over off side ad for vee tire on fat-bike n go through there are like 4 new 4.7 silca tires: snowshoe XL (plus studded), h Billie, bulldozer.

    http://veetireco.com/wp-content/uplo...h-billie-1.jpg

    I cannot find any other info. That plus 4.7 Dillinger makes me want clownshoes now. Some faster 4.7 rubber.

    Do you have the links? I just tried this and I'm only seeing the 4 vee tire offerings that have been around for a while (v8, speedster, mission, snowshoe).

    I did see a piece of text scroll by on the site that mentioned 27.5x4 though!! I hadn't heard anything about a larger diameter fatbike wheel, so that is surprising.

    In my eyes Vee has dropped the ball on every fat tire they put their name on so far. Not getting to excited about anything from them till it is out and examined.

    ^ Agreed, bdundee.

    I really like the On One Floater, was that manufactured by Vee? If so maybe they should ask On One to design more of their tires while Vee does the tooling.

    It won't link pages, goto a tire and it offers similar tires below. The prices are different per tire, but all wording is the same snowshoe description. It just shows different treads. I posted link to a specific tread picture.

    Sorry

    The designer (me) is no longer with O-O.
    I would be more than happy to design tires for Vee, and I have offered to do so.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Looks like they have some promise! I think people might lean towards better performance vs. a better price given their reputation.

    That H-Billie looks like what the Snowshoe should have been. More lugs to trap more snow under the tire and to keep it from sliding so much in the corners.

    My thoughts exactly. Of course it'll probably be 150g heavier, but...

    My spin on Snowshoes...

    I mounted a Vee Snowshoe on the front of my Mukluk and it was a night and day difference from Larry for my first two rides!

    That being said, it was cold! I road on a frozen lake both times below 20 degrees. It held and turned on everything but absolute glare ice. Good feedback. No self tracking at all. There is something to the silica compound. It was just like Blizzaks on my Mini. I can't wait to try them in warmer conditions.

    It it you want a true cold weather tire, the Snowshoe would be hard to beat!

    Very much. Snowshoes work very well on the snow and the Bulldozers have kung fu grip on the dirt.

    Lucky you. I ordered snowshoe XL's back in January and still don't have them. I should probably just shutup, but it's very frustrating that not a single part I ordered in January has arrived yet -- no tires, no rims, no nothing. I'm starting to get angry with more suppliers than QBP. At the point where I can actually build the bike I want, I may decide to hell with it, and just stick with my 25-yr-old Jamis, because none of these ****ers deserve my money as I'm tired of being burned by "vaporware" which one can order, just never actually receive. Maybe I just lack the secret fatbike password? PM me if you have it, I'd like a fatbike to ride this winter.

    I started my last build in March and had no problems getting it completed in 3 months. Maybe you just need to bend a little bit.

    Maybe, but those Borealis rims I ordered are now on Version 2. And it seems some mfr bought up the whole run of snowshoe XLs. Neither company has been very communicative about these issues. How, as someone who hasn't bought a bike in 25 years, am I supposed to know what's actually available, vs. mfr ********? IOW, how do I know when I need to "bend a little bit" when suppliers are making promises to me, which apparently they either can't keep, or have no intention of keeping?

    Really? This is on me?

    The Snowshoe XL was supposed to be available in August.
    Guess what.....it's available.
    The problem seems to be you not be able to figure out a simple purchase.

    Just cancel your Borealis rims, buy a set of nextie, you'll have them in 2 weeks, any design you want. Much cheaper too.

    When I first wanted them last December, they were supposed to be available in February. Yes, I should have checked for the umpteenth time, before posting. Sorry for losing my patience with products that don't show up until 10 months after they're announced. Wait, no, I'm not...

    Obviously, you haven't been here very long; try waiting for Surly/Salsa/45Nrth products. Right now, we've practically got the golden age of fatbikes. Never before has there been such selection and availability of frames, tires, wheels, forks, cranks, hubs and other sundry fatbike items and things will only continue to improve for us. Given the hard time you're having putting together a fatbike, when others are doing just fine, perhaps fatbikes just aren't for you. As someone who hasn't bought a bike in 25 years, building a custom from the ground up may not have been the wisest move. Buying something already built from your lbs or online would have been considerably easier and caused much less angst for you. An added bonus is that you would have been able to narrow down exactly what you wanted and didn't want at a much lower cost.

    Instead, you're stabbing in the dark, trying to build your 1st bike in 25 years. You don't exactly know what to get or where to find it and because of that, you're frustrated and lashing out; your inability to assemble components for your bike is everyone's fault but your own. Take a deep breath and relax; parts are readily available. I'm sure there are forum members here who would be more than happy to help you get what you need, if you would just ask politely, instead of b¡tching incessantly.
