    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!
